This is the completed sketch of my leaf line drawing. Here I was focusing on getting at least three distinct layers to show in the drawing. I was working mostly on just planning out the drawing out this point.
This is the first outline of my leaf line drawing on the final paper. Here I was also working on keeping the three layers distinct, creating shape, and filling the entire paper.
This was the first sketch of the Swirling Squares drawing. I was experimenting with the different methods to create movement within the drawing (i.e. clockwise squares vs counterclockwise squares). At this point I wasn't really thinking about value or shape quite yet.
This was about 2/3 of the finished drawing, on the final paper. At this point I was actively thinking about how hard I was pressing, in order to create differing values and begin to create shape and movement within the squares. At this point I had also added three triangles to vary the shape and pattern of my line drawing.
