I did mange to complete two pages of celtic knot exercises from Chapter 5 of Sheila Sturrock's book "Celtic Knotwork Designs" and am pleased with how much I have learned. I also received, in today's mail, "Celtic Knotwork Handbook" by Sheila Sturrock, which is a smaller condensed version of "Celtic Knotwork Designs". It is small and compact and I'll be able to take it along on trips, etc. and practice designs whenever I find the opportunity. Yes!
So... here are the two pages of exercises I completed today .....
"Exercises #23 to #38"
"Exercises #39 to #51"
As you can see, the designs are beginning to get more detailed and complex. This is so much fun and exciting to be learning something I thought was beyond my comprehension! I am now beginning to understand the plotting and how one can alter a design to give it a different perspective.
My eldest grandson requested that I create a celtic design for him to have made into a tattoo awhile back and I told him I didn't think I was capable of doing one. By the time I have finished this book I think I will have the confidence to create a special design just for him. Won't that be grand!
Take care all and may your day be filled with blessings and love!
