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.
Double stroke the lines to add spaces around the perimeter, and then close any open edges.
Add weight to the strokes to help ‘ground’ the letter.
Fill some of the spaces around the perimeter with simple patterns.
Add circles, loops and triangles to make the patterns more detailed.
Using Gelly Roll Metallic® and Gelly Roll Stardust® pens, add touches of colour to the remaining spaces around the perimeter of the letter.
