Today I drew some patterns that I will be using in my colouring calendar I sell. I start by drawing the outlines- leaves today. Then I study the subject- in this case it was easy as I have lots of different types of leaf in my garden.
I design patterns based on the patterns I can see in the subject.
I used my Sakura Micron pensfor the drawing (there are various nib sizes allowing a range of fine lines and they are archival quality).
It takes me a couple of hours to complete three leaves due to the detail. The artwork for the calendar is completely hand drawn so each month takes a few days. For the sake of this challenge I’ve taken a photo of the leaves I completed today and then manipulated them digitally using CraftArtist 2 Professional to produce a complete project. I also added my usual copyright information etc.
Please cheer me on with my challenge and follow me on instagram if you are over there (any pointers are welcome as I have no idea what I am doing on Instagram at the moment!!).
I’d like to enter the following challenges which are all anything goes (and I think O.K. with a drawing project). Do go and check out the amazing blogs…
