I took this as an opportunity to explore these patterns and discover variations in how the patterns can be embellished and in adding shade.
Each had its own challenges, but I feel I have a few options to work with when I choose to use these patterns.
I worked in black and white, using a Pitt matt graphite pencil to add shade. That is unusual for me; usually, I like to work with colour.
Although not every section has had shade added, nor has the line weight been adjusted, I’m happy with what I produced. It will be added to my sketchbook, which is fast becoming a repository of ideas and inspiration!
