One of the things I love about Lily's inventions is how many spaces there are to put patterns into. Every single one seems to have triangles, squares, curves, ellipticals, and many other shapes to play with. Browsing her patterns, it's easy to see her African roots.
The Lily Popcheff patterns I chose are Glace and Pines. Glace is the string, so to speak, and I put patterns inside the spaces. I provide a link to it, so you can see what it is like as a basic pattern.
The new to me R patterns I used are rouche, rosewood, and reticulated. Rain is in there, in a tangleation. Rain is one of my favorites, so I've used it a lot, but it does start with R and it just put itself in there. Like it was meant to be.
I used sepia sakura microns in 05 and 01, and shading/coloring were done with prismacolor Tuscan Red and Henna. Somehow, the rays on the reticulated, coming out from the half circles, ended up like footlights...but I like it.
This isn't my usual style at all, but it ends up being my favorite challenge entry for the week. Lots of fun!
