Week 31: Adobe Illustrator

After two weeks off from practicing Adobe Illustrator, I am back in the saddle. Thankfully returning to the program wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be. This week I played with quatrefoils. Some patterns, like the one above, are clean and simple. Others, like the one below, are ornate. Of the two patterns, Quatrefoiled I (small) is my favourite.

I worked on the (above) Quatrefoil motif for a good part of the week building it from one base shape that I rotated, scaled, clipped, layered, and then coloured with Live Paint. It's amazing what you can do with the common circle.
