I had started this tangle a week ago....well the border, it is from a Molossus pattern and I messed it up. It was in my new journal and I did not want to waste the page. Finally this morning I decided to try and fix it. The challenge is to use a dark background and white on top. I do not have a white pen and my town does not have a place to buy one so I just worked a little backwards by filling in all the spaces I could with black. Here is my first of the two pieces allowed in the challenge....... it may go further down and not be in the slide presentation as I contemplate new pieces throughout the week. The challenges are so wonderful for my creative desire to go and try new things. I always do more than I should but I just love doing them.
I looked at more of Morris and decided to do this piece taking one of his elements and placing it into a tangle. His colors are muted but somehow they pop!
On this tangle I tried a little shading with white on the black.
On the next few peices I used blackboard and used color pencil. The lines are not as clean as I would like them to be but it was nice to work the peice more of the way described in the challenge.
I am a wife, mother, grandmother, clerk, and appreciator of art. Sometimes I try to produce some art myself. Mainly I love the art of others. Doodling has been a big part of my life. Notes were never left unadorned. Now that I have found zentangle....doodling has become more exciting and fun! I hope you enjoy.
