From the pattern book

Slowly but steadily my Moleskine sketchbook is filling up with patterns. I'm halfway through now and I have so far done over fifty different pattern drawings. Yes, I counted! ;-)

Here are some of my latest:

As always these are drawn with a Pitt drawing pen with brush tip and then coloured in with Pitt Big Brush markers. Sometimes I will outline things with a pencil and ruler if I want very straight lines or need guidelines. It's always fun to pick shapes and colours and experiment with different approaches.

I already look forward to the time when this book is fully filled with patterns and colours, because just flipping through it now already makes me happy. All that colour! Yum! ;-)

Hope you are doing something that makes you happy and wishing you a wonderful and artsy Wednesday!
