Step 1
Using a black Pigma Micron® 01 pen, draw a 12.7 cm (5”) outline of the letter "R" on a sheet of Strathmore® 400 series drawing paper.

Step 2
Double stroke the lines to add spaces around the perimeter, and then close any open edges.

Step 3
Add weight to the strokes to help ‘ground’ the letter.

Step 4
Fill some of the spaces around the perimeter with simple patterns.

Step 5
Add circles, loops and triangles to make the patterns more detailed.

Step 6
Using Gelly Roll Metallic® and Gelly Roll Stardust® pens, add touches of colour to the remaining spaces around the perimeter of the letter.
