molygon and done it

I'll admit that when the first tiles featuring Molygon started to appear, before it was released to the masses, I wasn't that impressed.  I couldn't see it as much more than a few crescents laid side by side.

But Molygon comes into its own when you actually start to draw it, you get into a kind of rhythm, and then stopping is far hard than starting ever seemed.  Prompted by this week's Diva Challenge - I played with lots of variations in my sketchbook, but for now I went with this one. 

Micron and watercolour pens on lilac Indian cotton rag paper

A sort of nameless line fill, partly like the fill you sometimes see on Jetties, and partly like my own Kitl.  It just seemed to work well round those bends.  And then Finery in those panels that appeared when I followed the breaks between the Molygons.  I don't think I'm tucking my Molygons in as tightly as suggested, but I quite like them this way, with that gap in the middle - room to tuck something else or just leave blank.

  1. This is such a lovely tile. It's beautifully composed, especially how the sections of "Finery" are framed. Well done!

  2. Well whatever your fill pattern is, it works very well. Sometimes you just need to pattern without worrying about whether or not it has a name or instructions. This is a great tile.

  6. Beautiful tile. I love your use of Finery. The fill for your Molygon looks a lot like Onion Drops.
