Pursuit Curves

I think pursuit curves are great and past classes have really enjoyed drawing them. If anything it's good practise at drawing lines and measuring carefully using a ruler! All of the examples here (thanks to Kim for most of them!) have been coloured in black and white but other colour combinations work well.

An equilateral triangle and a square.

 

A pentagon.

You can either do a standard hexagonal pursuit curve (left) or split your hexagon into 6 equilateral pursuit curves which looks really effective!

The technique is simple.

Draw a regular 2D shape. Then progress around the side of the shape either clockwise or anti-clockwise marking a set distance from each corner.

Join the marks you make up so that you have a smaller version of the shape slightly offset inside the original shape.

Now continue as before on the sides of this new shape.

etc.
