Experiments in Pattern

A series of different black brush strokes on a white background.

Find an object with patterns – a shell, a leaf, a wooden surface and look at it carefully – use a magnifying glass if you have one.

Divide a sheet of paper into 3 or more squares.

In the first square draw a detailed pattern as you see it.

In the next square draw, the pattern again but simplify it.

Repeat and simplify the pattern further.
