Texture Tiles 1 by Artwyrd Texture Tiles 1 by Artwyrd
Yesterday I made a couple of little sketchbooks with the kinds of papers I like to work on in them. The books themselves are around 4" x 6" so the paper inside is even smaller ...

I've decided in one to create a reference collection of textures and patterns that I particularly like - taking them in the first instance from work I've already done, but also from visits to places too ... hopefully it will grow ...

Black and white ink on brown paper.
5.5" x 3.5" approx.
around 5 hours to do the drawings.

this is a great resource! :D especially for an artist of your field that works mostly in abstraction.

:) Thank you. The year 12 pupils in school were completing something similar in their art class on Friday after the head of art saw this and got inspired to inspire them to do some detailed graphic work! :)
