More Circular Designs

I’m still working on more designs that repeat in a circular format. These are all circles that started split up into a 6th of the circle.

It’s always interesting to me to see how the overall pattern turns out.  If the edges of the design touch the edge of the 1/6 pie shape, then they connect in your final design. This design started very linear and ended up looking like a large flower. It’s colored with markers.

I purposely colored this one to give it a floral look. I’m sure it would change dramatically with a different color scheme. The color is added with colored pencils with this one.

This design looks almost like it was created in thirds but it started as a 1/6 pie shape as well. This is colored with black markers of different tip widths.

And here’s the last one. It is a colored in with gel pens. I’m just trying out a variety of media with these. Next I’m moving on to 1/4, 1/3, 1/8 and 1/12 pie shapes. It’s amazing the variety of designs you can create with this technique.

Circle Design

I started on my homework from my Level 3 Art and Design class. We are developing repeating patterns in circles.

This is my first attempt. I tried to emphasize the feather like part of the design and less of the flower shape. Still really see the flower shape mainly. I’ve got lots more of these to try. Have a great weekend.
