My Best in Each Symmetry Group — P6

Surprisingly, I never would have thought that this symmetry group would end up being a favourite. A tight area where a 6-fold rotation occurs, at the corner of a triangle. The other two corners offer 3 way rotation and 2 way rotation. This repeated 6 times in a hexagon. This is the nerdy way to explain it, not really the best way. Twenty five in the slideshow below!

Only 2 lines to draw in this symmetry group to enclose your nested shape. Link the two and three way rotation points, with a nice wavy or rambling line. Then from anywhere on that line, link it to the six-way rotation point. I’ll be showing all of these techniques in video format once the Skillshare classes are complete.
