Paisley // Try Every Day

Try Every Day #22

Paisley has always fascinated me. It’s such an odd thing to see this arguably abstract pattern on men’s clothing. I’m not sure why it became popular, but I’m glad it did. It’s a very interesting pattern that leaves plenty of room for personalization and experimentation.

I’m thinking of doing a paisley pattern on the key heart drawing… so, it’s time to learn how to draw paisley. Also, I wanted to try thicker Pigma Graphic pens and see how much bleed I would have to deal with.

Top right, I sketched in pencil first. The rest was done with just the pen. No going back! The good thing about this pattern is how forgiving it is. Takes some of the fear out of just going for it.
