I’ve been doing a lot more drawing since I have been in New Zealand and have really enjoyed the relaxing process of sitting down with a pen or pencil to just see what happens on the paper. I don’t know if I can really even call it drawing as I am more tracing lines made with a compass but I still enjoy it.
A lot of people have commented on all of it so I thought I would show a bit of a break down on the process so you can all see what is involved and how it all started progress and take shape.
It all starts with a simple circle. The first circle in the centre is drawn and then another 8 circles are drawn off of that, all the same size. In this instance I decided to do on an bit of an over / under pattern on the lines to give it a bit more of a flow.
I decided that the line needed to be a bit thicker and made marks as to where my lines would stop and how wide they would be.
I thickened all the lines before getting ready to colour them in.
After colouring in it was time to start adding on finer detail which i did in most parts to mimic the same contour lines of the original drawing.
I seemed to miss a few pics towards the end as I got tired and forgot but basically I started free-styling it and just deciding how to use up more of the space.
I think I am happy with the overall outcome of it so Just need to work on improving it next time. Maybe even do a much bigger drawing with this as the centre. As soon as I get settled I think I will get myself an A3 Notepad and try doing some bigger drawings. See how it all pans out 🙂
