A few of my recent Sunday sketches (see #122, #123… and even #124) have traced a thin line from one side of the page to the opposite side. Finally, I pulled out my dot pad and gel pen, and tried hand-sketching some related designs.
I think right-angled triangles – in other words, half-square triangles – are my favourite shape. I like all the movement in the above design, but I also wanted to see how these shapes would look in formation, all facing the same direction.
I like it! Big arrows pointing down, or double-headed HSTs facing up.
I might try recreating these designs in EQ8 so I can add some colour. I think there could be some interesting opportunities for transparency, too.
These designs could be translated into quilt patterns using HSTs, squares and rectangles.
