Our first drawing task was to draw from an Image found in a book. I wanted to choose something I was familiar with and fairly comfortable drawing; because of this I choose plants.
Above is a photograph of my drawing from the book. I attempted to pay attention to detail in the petal shapes as I wanted to make the drawing sensitive and subtle in the mark making. I was also aware off the shading to try and encourage the drawing to be more realistic.
To develop them more I wanted to create a repeat pattern using each drawing separately; I experimented with composition.
I feel the drawing of repeat pattern on the left worked better than the second. I like the natural movement and how the shapes flows well from one to another. I could imagine both of these working well on interior products such as duvet covers, wallpaper and cushions.
