I know I am jumping about like a rabbit but at least I am a Celtic bunny. :-) With Celtic Art, The Methods of Construction by George Bain in hand and The Celtic Design Book: A Beginner's Manual, Knotwork, Illuminated Letters by Aidan Meehan on the way, I'd like to try some knotmaking.
But before I delve into those texts, I want to first try an exercise from Katharine's web site.
I left out the shading and border, as clearly this turned out to be a practice piece. I did okay with the initial layout of the squares but got a bit off with the diagonals spacing. That in turn mucked up the curves. But all in all, it was a really good exercise, letting me get the feel for the "over and under". It looked easy to do but it took time for me to feel spatially at home. After roughing in with a 4H pencil, these lines were finished off with a Pigma Micron 01 Sepia. I'll give this exercise another go soon.
While out around the lake this weekend, I kept noticing intertwining. More examples to come...
