I have been working with this new floral zentangle inspired design as I posted earlier this month.
For my latest Drawing class assignment I attempted to re-imagine the pattern as a “3D drawing”, which was the focus of the assignment.
Above is the design drawn on foam board and cut out using an X-Acto Knife. I mounted it on the wall slightly raised away from the wall (about 1 inch, using small pieces of foam board) so that you can see the shadows through the parts of the pattern I removed. The piece is about 1.5 x 1.5 feet big. I may paint it or colour it in the future, but won’t have time before it’s due.
Below is my second successful experiment with this pattern, drawn with permanent marker on a Styrofoam ball. First I painted the ball with a few layers of white acrylic paint.
There were a few other attempts I made that did not turn out but I guess you don’t know until you try! Just to give you an idea of what I was working from here is what the pattern looks like in it’s original 2D form:
Anyways I am working on about 5 other projects at once for my courses so I will have lots more to post in the future, so stay tuned!
Have a great weekend everyone, and a Happy Thanksgiving weekend to my fellow Canadians!
