Making art with pencils these days :#1:

I had this saved on my computer for a couple of months and I never really thought about posting it until now :D

The idea was to show a windmill pattern by placing the pencils in a shape of a square and rotate it by 45°. However, the picture seemed idle and after a few changes on the colour sequence, I noticed it needed something more. I began to flip and rotate the picture until I got this fairly attracting pattern.
Kind of hypnotizing in its own weird way, isn't it?

The pencils I photographed were taken from my marvelous Bruynzeel pencil can which I used for my Perception and Reconcile drawings :eager:

I'm using them for a new conceptual self portrait. As strange as it sounds, people asked me for a new self portrait 8D so I'm drawing one with a twist! You'll see once it's done. C:

Cheers everyone! :heart: Have a great Sunday!

This is really cool! :-)
It makes me think of vibrant floor tiles like for a kids' area. Or something. :-)

I'm guessing you had to put down 44 pencils to make this?
I just want to guess how!
