Random Tangents, Three Circles
…perhaps demonstrative of my thinking processes or something. Anyway, for these images I used a series of nine numbers culled from random.org to set the diameter and x-y coordinates of three circles in Illustrator. I then drew the segments and rays emanating from the circle centers and various tangential points on their circumferences. I then did a simple transparency fill to create a series of overlapping gray areas. Thus, this result:
I will probably attempt to produce actual graphite drawings on paper using these starting principles, combining process and hand at the same time.
