As per my usual week, I probably started thinking about this one on the day it was posted and maybe scratched out a few ideas thinking, yes, I'll get this done tomorrow. Well, guess what? It's Sunday! (bet that was a surprise? it was to me!) and even though I finished drawing about 3 days ago - this is the first chance I've actually had to sit down and create a post. Getting in the way? A cow who has (just) gone into labour but doesn't look like she's in any kind of hurry, unborn lambs that we thought would be born, trees to be sprayed, kids to be ferried. Gardens to be gardened. Whew. I'm tired just thinking about it - pretty sure I need a clone a la Michael Keaton in Multiplicity only without all the disastrous results.
O.k., here's what I came up with:
Scroll feather variation with repetitive s strokes.
Meh. The feather didn't excite me all that much so I returned to one of my favourite c-stroke designs Knyt by Lyndel Churchill - I love working with this pattern. It's not really undulating, though like most patterns, there is repetition. Once I had it in my head that I was going to draw with it, that was it - it was happening. I have a slightly different method that I use to draw Knyt which you find here.
A "filled" version.
I'm not sure which I prefer, the first one is airier with lots of white space which I love, but I like the additional visual interest in the second - for some reason the leaves also stand out more to me in this version.
I'm pretty terrible at getting around and seeing everyone's work at the moment.......hopefully once life is a little less "full" I'll be on top of it.
Have a good week!
