This is the result of trying to recreate a pattern … pinwheels.
The shading here isn’t too bad. I’m using the same pen, and a black ballpoint, to create the shades and tones. I don’t want to get started on collecting pens of varying shades of blacks and greys … well, not yet, anyway. I’m sure that eventually I’ll start on that, depending on the complexity of the project.
I’m not sure anymore if this was the pattern I wanted to recreate before, but no matter … I know how to do this now.
On to the next obsession!
