The Diva’s challenge this week is to do a tile with a theme for Earth Day, which her oldest son called Amanda because he didn’t feel Earth was a good enough name. Luckily Square One: Purely Zentangle’s focus tangle is Lily Moon Luna’s new tangle Caracole, which looked really fun/easy to draw as well as resembles either a flower or the sun.
The tangle of the day yesterday was OO-Africa by Ina Sonnenmoser and I think it resembles clouds. It too is relatively easy to draw. The only problem I had was that I wanted to draw both tangles larger than the space I had available. I could have drawn them a bit smaller but opted against it.
So here is my tile before shading.
I do feel I could have made OO-Africa a bit smaller. It is an alternating grid pattern but I realized that by putting the dots down diagonally, it was easier to keep track of them because then they can just be laid down in rows.
Here it is after shading.
Here it is a bit smaller, so you don’t see the imperfections as well.
I guess I was afraid of muddying it with too much graphite but now it looks more like a coloring book drawing. Maybe I’ll go back and add some more shading later today. Right now, I do not have the time to do that, so I’ll post a new picture if I managed to do it.
I appreciate you stopping by and really appreciate it if you’d leave me a comment, it’s always so encouraging.
Until next time, God bless,
