Every now and then, an exercise in absolute concentration and intense scrutiny (!) has its rewards. Nature presents so many wonderous patterns and symmetry. The lines, the hexagonals, the circles, the overall design…wow. One has to admire surely and wonder about the tiny living creatures that once lived.
I’ve used a Lamy fountain pen to draw this and really enjoy the fine lines you can obtain by using the reverse side of the nib. I did this in the drawing in the top right corner. It feels more scratchy but the lines are more delicate.
