Incompetent Acanthus // Try Every Day

Try Every Day #21

This is a disgrace, but it’s all part of the learning process. This is my first attempt at scrollwork / acanthus design. I thought about practicing a few times before sharing here, but that would be counter to everything I’m doing here.

If I’m serious about trying out some woodblock designs… learning classical acanthus and scrollwork designs is almost mandatory. I’ve never tried to fill a space with a pattern before. I wasn’t trying that here, I was just trying to develop some feel for the curves involved. I think what I learned is that I have no idea what I’m doing.
