Sampling in the round

I searched through my archives yesterday for photos featuring circles and things interesting in their roundness and found many - two drawings of mine and some markmaking, photos of the artwork of others, round objects seen and those not quite round, and parts of things, arcs and segments.

Here is a sample of what I found.

                       
                           The base of an onion

            Expressive drawing with a finger, an oil pastel and a blue crayon.

            Markmaking with acrylic paint and a wax crayon

           An art installation at Heathrow Airport
   
           Artwork on a hoarding in Christchurch, NZ
    
           My son's favourite mirror
       
           A plaque inset into Writer's Walk in Circular Quay, Sydney
       
           Extraordinary architecture seen in Singapore, lit up at night

  2. What a fun exploration of circle-based designs! I especially love the root-side of the onion...the way the non-symmetry is contained within the circular shape. It's amazing how far-reaching this so basic of shapes can be!

    1. Very many thanks for your kind comment. The onion drawing was lovely to do and made me realise that I should spend more time doing this sort of concentrated observing and drawing.
