Sketch of the day no 199: Islamic influence geometric pattern

This is my attempt of recreating a geometric pattern I love so much as seen on a lot of Islamic design. I haven’t followed their precise rules but rules are meant to be broken.

In Islamic design, patterns are made up of mathematically precise grids that are based on circles, squares and triangles.  I do also love the curvier, organic arabesque art.  It is historically interesting to learn how each culture has a different view of how art is represented. In Islam, images were not encouraged. For that reason geometric patterns were developed and perfected.

Since it’s Eid today, and on the theme of Islam, today I decided to sketch an Izmik plate. I really love the floral pattern on this one. I do love islamic designs in particular the floral ones such as this and the geometric patterns.
