An experiment in the iconic Argentine decorative motif of fileteado, Just to show that I (occasionally) branch out into non-figure-related areas!

Drawing this sort of decoration is actually surprisingly difficult; a strong sense of flow, hierarchy, and proportion is essential to avoiding a confused mass of curls.

One thought on “Fileteado

  1. Beautiful! I especially like the tiny dots that finish the very fine lines. Is this an architectural ornament? There’s something about it that’s reminiscent of carved acanthus leaves.
