"Celtic Knot Shamrock"

St. Patrick's Day is on its way and I thought now would be a good time to try my hand at some Celtic Knot designs. My first attempt at this beautiful style of art is a piece I have titled "Celtic Knot Shamrock".   I have the original ACEO as well as Open Edition ACEO art prints now available in My Etsy Shop.


I am going to try my hand at some more celtic knot designs and hope to be sharing them with you in the near future.  Wish me luck (of the Irish?) in my latest endeavors!

Your friend,

Thank you Nells! I just received a new book on learning to draw celtic designs ... can hardly wait to begin my first lesson!

I think I know that book, Karen! Is it the Dover publication?

I never can follow it: I always end up making my own versions of Celtic knots & shamrocks too (as you probably already know).

Anyway, I like your piece!

Hi Lise!
It is "A David and Charles Book" publication ... I received it today and Yes! It is difficult to follow ... it took over an hour to finally understand the directions for circles in spirals ... whew! Anyway, I'll keep it for future use ... but my preference, so far, is the dot (on grid) method, my mind comprehends that .... moral of the story: you have to find the right explanation that connects with your particular mind ....
