Abstract botanical black & white illustration

Hello everyone 🙂 I hope you have been having a good week. I have been busy working on some new designs in black ink pen (no surprise!!!) and I wanted to share my progress with you so far.

I started off by drawing out my design with a fine (0.5mm) pen. I dont plan what the design will look like, but rather go with my mood and how I’m feeling at the time, so if I’m thinking about putting wavy lines in or circles then I will go with that (although nearly every design I have EVER done has circles in, as I’m obsessed with them!)

Here I have added more detail to the design. More motifs, pattern and lines are emerging, but again I’m not planning on how the design is going.

Here I’m beginning to thicken some of the lines (with a thicker 1.0mm pen) and generally adding more and more detail to the design.

This design isn’t finished yet, but hopefully not far off now. To keep up to date with my progress of this and other pieces I’m currently working on, you can follow my instagram feed here. I usually post daily with images of my progress or projects I’m starting/finishing or just experiments I’m trying out. I’d love to see you there!
