Let’s draw with Nicola Dixon
Manx artist Nicola Dixon frequently uses interlace and has been inspired by the techniques of Archibald Knox in her range of beautiful paintings.
In this tutorial Nicola will demonstrate how she has adapted the Archibald Knox style to create her own interlace technique.
‘I love Archibald Knox’s description of the artist’s line being like a blade of grass blowing in the wind. I hope by watching my video you will be inspired to create interlacing patterns of your own and to look closer at the work of Archibald Knox and the beautiful designs on the Manx crosses.’ Nicola Dixon
