Daily Marker Challenge: 201-206, Lots of Knots

When I don't want to think too hard about what to draw, I will pick a pattern/theme and stick with it. This week that theme turned out to be Celtic knots and spirals. I first learned how to draw Celtic knots and spirals in high school, but they are are pretty technical and easy for me to forget how to do if I haven't done some in a while. Thankfully, I found my two books on drawing them, and largely drew upon Draw Your Own Celtic Designs by David James and Victor Gonzalez to refresh my skills. Thank goodness for compasses, guides, and rulers. I still freehand the final designs, but the skeletons of each was drawn with help. It makes things so much easier.
