Orbs-la-Dee Challenge

We live in a very old weatherboard farmhouse with no air conditioning and once it starts heating up over summer it becomes unbearable for me to play upstairs in my studio, so I have now decamped to my summer office (aka the verandah, or the coffee table in the lounge). It takes a little more co-ordination, but I am getting some drawing done.

Today I had a go at the latest Diva Challenge which was to use the Orbs-la-Dee tangle pattern. I don't remember using this pattern previously, so it was fun to try something new.

My interpretations of a pattern are usually more of a riff, than an accurate representation - here's what I came up with:

I wanted to try individual rows of the pattern connected by string, this then lead onto a string swirl dotted with random diamonds and aura-d oval centres which look nothing at all like the original pattern.......hahaha.........but it was the inspiration :)

It's been a while since I've drawn any string and I definitely felt rusty!

Have a good one!
