The Square One: Purely Zentangle focus and Shading Zentangle focus is Sindoo (by Sharon Robinson), which seems to be a reticula and fragment tangle, so it worked well with this challenge.
The WZTV challenge is Quib. I like Quib even though I haven’t used it much. The last tangle I used is the tangle of the day on pattern-collections is Feeta by Smita Toke.
I decided to have two different grid sections. Grid is just a lot easier to say than reticulum or reticula, since I have a hard time remembering which one to use when. I put them on a diagonal to add a little interest and allow for some space for the other two tangles I wanted to include.
Here it is before shading.
At the top is Sindoo, Quib is the the right, Feeta is to the left, and my fragment is at the bottom. I used fragment A2 from the June 1, 2013 Zentangle newsletter. In the unshaded version I have a dot in the section I was supposed to blacken in but wasn’t ready to commit to doing yet.
Here it is shaded.
I didn’t know quite how to shade Feeta. I tried a little drop shading but was not fearless enough with it. I love how Frag A2 turned out! I could’ve been a bit bolder in my shading but I was racing the clock (and losing) to get this done. I have a big announcement very soon (check back on Friday for sure) which has been taking up a bit of my time of late but soooo worth it.
Any way, thank you so much for your kind comments. It always means so much and is so encouraging. I’m glad you all like to see he comparison before and after shading; it is pretty remarkable.
Well, I gotta run. Have a great day!
Until next time, God bless,
