Echotanicals = Echo Lines + Botanicals
I love the look of antique engraved botanical drawings, however, I'm not incredibly attracted to reproducing realistic pictures. I noticed that some types of Echo Line bunches resembled natural plants and flowers, and set out to explore more. By using certain basic guidelines, any bunch of Echo Lines can be transformed into imaginary plants and buds. Combined with Renaissance techniques over tan Zentangle tiles, the results look like engraved antiqued botanicals illustrations.
