I’m still working on more designs that repeat in a circular format. These are all circles that started split up into a 6th of the circle.
It’s always interesting to me to see how the overall pattern turns out. If the edges of the design touch the edge of the 1/6 pie shape, then they connect in your final design. This design started very linear and ended up looking like a large flower. It’s colored with markers.
I purposely colored this one to give it a floral look. I’m sure it would change dramatically with a different color scheme. The color is added with colored pencils with this one.
This design looks almost like it was created in thirds but it started as a 1/6 pie shape as well. This is colored with black markers of different tip widths.
And here’s the last one. It is a colored in with gel pens. I’m just trying out a variety of media with these. Next I’m moving on to 1/4, 1/3, 1/8 and 1/12 pie shapes. It’s amazing the variety of designs you can create with this technique.
Lovely designs, but I’m having a hard time wrapping my head around how they are made from the linear points. My favorite is the floral one. I’ll just enjoy that. 🙂
Thanks Marilyn! As I was posting this, I thought that I should go back and take a photo of one of the design pieces that make up the whole. I will try to remember to do that next time.
Yes, I would like to see more of the process please. I love the second flower.
Thanks Lyn, I will show some of the line designs with my next post.
