As the weather shows some signs of warming up, I’ve turned my attention towards embellished Islamic architectural doors and windows. With Ramadan approaching fast, it’s a good time for me to make a head start on Islamic art ideas.
Geometric designs in Islamic art are a combination of overlapping and interlacing patterns. A complex challenge I’m taking on with Photoshop. My pen tool is ready to get lost in a web of tessellations.
My first attempt at intricate Islamic art involved a variety of designs, transformed from simple geometric shapes. It took me 10 tries just to get a single pattern right. I felt like a mathematician trying to work out equations. Now as I’m trying this at home and teaching myself, brace yourself for failed attempt posts.
