When I was at college, I made a book full of square patterns which I loved.
My very Fierce Teacher said "That's very nice, now make patterns without using squares" although she may not have quite said the first bit, and just occasionally I still think "I'm not allowed to do squares!".
But this week I have been given permission by both the "Three Muses" challenge (Circles and Squares) and the "Art Journal Journey" challenge (Squares) to make art with squares.
Although I sometimes use photo-editing, all my art (unless otherwise stated) starts from my own paintings or my own photographs.
Fierce Teacher might have liked this - it's not a square ........
Now it is!
This was painted on the diagonal in the hope of making an interesting square tile when four squares were put together.
And perhaps Fierce Teacher, who was also Inspirational Teacher was saying, it's alright to make squares but Not All The Time!
Just one more for now.
I wonder if there is one pattern we tend to use more than others in our art, whether it's a square, a circle, a bird, a face or .... ?
