Drawing Challenge :: Habit

I draw circles hundreds of them at one sitting

I document accidental groups of circles

I surround myself with their roundness to gaze upon


This was a no brainer for me if we look at the definition of Habit that being routines of  repeated actions then I cant get away from the repeated circles in my life I draw them, I surround myself with them. There is something satisfying and nurturing in drawing the roundness of shape to let ones eye follow around the boundary of a circle.

Its a little late this one I have been busy but a big thankyou to Kirsten our host of this drawing challenge you can visit her blog and follow the links for more habits.

Enjoy Helen x

dear Helen this is a habit i can associate with easily, round objects appeal to me too, from drawing a circle to touching a spherical shape... the smoothness, no obstructions, something like completeness i guess

beautiful illustrated post, xx

I'm fascinated of circles, dots and balls. do you know the book "circles and dots" (m.hampshire & k.stephenson) - I love this book! in my new art boxes (I show it monday) you'll find some balls too! :-) mano

Dear Helen,
I enjoy your circles a lot! so as your post here.
It is a really archaic pattern, isn't it? a powerful pattern, indeed. Wonderful habit.

x Ariane.

It is indeed archaic and I suppose life is cyclic too.
Mano the book sounds great something I would love look forward to seeing it. I also like the feel of roundness too it doesnt have to be perfect either just that continuous smooth surface like a beach pebble.
I try to get away from drawing them sometimes but I guess Im not done with them as I seem to always come back to them.

I hope you are all enjoying your week

Helen :)
