Here's a detail from Starry Sky. Watercolour stars twinkling at night. A pattern that brings the outdoors indoors. That brings starlight into electric light. I had already pictured it, but now it was beginning to fall into place. The colours, the pattern, the mood and the rhythm.  

I brought my watercolour into Adobe Photoshop to create the seamless pattern, but something was wrong! I struggled, tried this and that, but nothing worked. 

One morning I woke up and knew how to fix it! I had found the solution in my dreams.
