This one WAS a challenge ... and not sure I like it yet ...
I keep telling myself, "There are no mistakes, there are no mistakes..."
I started this one over three times ... Not sure if it was the colors I chose, or the fact that I tried to emphasize the "string" with pattern, or the number of spaces the string created ... but it feels too linear to me - not the soft flow that I usually get ... It was to honor Dads, so I wanted a more masculine look - even though two of the patterns were very scrollie (is that a word?), so I chose tan paper, and black and brown Micropens. I have seen several pieces with the string line emphasized, so I wanted to try out that look. I took some liberties with the enhancements and made up a few of my own variations. Then it looked dark, so I decided to give it a "glow" with white charcoal pencil ... maybe a little out there ... The colors photographed well I think.
The patterns on this one are: Double Ds, All about Vs, Diamonds and Squares, and Umble. It was fun learning these four.
