The Sketchbook Project - page 1

Tools: sepia Sakura Micron Pigma pens 01 and 05 with Derwent Inktense pencils.

I like drawing incremental patterns so that’s how I chose to start my sketchbook. I don’t plan my incremental drawings; I start with a shape and then repeat it. Then I add another shape and repeat that and eventually there’s a pattern. Drawing like this is very calming.

Starting the first drawing

I continued growing the pattern one line at a time.


After the lineart, I added some colour with watercolour pencils.
