India map

Going back through some old drawings I found these maps of India that were commissioned for a project in 2014.

I can't remember which one I liked better in the end. What do you think? Which one do you prefer?

  1. Back and forth. First? Second? First? back ... forth...
    I think the first (a bit more white space) - it feels just a bit more relaxed.
    Love and love them both! Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thank you, Rachel :) I enjoyed working within the parameters of an outline for these drawings - it meant I didn't have to think about composition - I could just go ahead a fill the shapes :) h

  4. Definitely the first - more "organic," not all "color inside the lines!" ... just my opinion, of course! :-)

    1. Yes, it's probably my favourite, too. I think it may have actually been my second version when I drew them, but it's some time ago now I can't be sure :) Thank you! h

  7. I like the top one the most, but they are both amazing. Fantastic job, Helen.

  8. I like the second one better because it seems to have more depth because of the denser patterns. And I agree with other's that they are both gorgeous.

  9. I prefer the first because it's more delicate and therefore more attractive to me.

  10. As everyone else says, I like them both. There are some elements that strike me with both drawings. However, if I have to pick, I think I would CZT go for the second one. It seems to say India more. TFS!

  12. How can anyone choose? Both are exquisite, Helen. These would be so beautiful in fabric. I can see wonderful throw pillows, bags, etc. made of fabric with your designs.. You are such an inspiration.
