This week I decided to go back to basics with my tile. Color stresses me a bit, so I wanted to keep it simple.
I started with one of my blank artist tiles, put down my four dots, borders, and a string. Then I checked the prompt over on Today’s Tangles: Keeping it Classic on facebook. Turns out they are keeping it simple this week too.
The prompt was to do a monotangle with your own choice of string. Of the tangles suggested, I chose Purk. It’s a tangle I like and I haven’t used it in a while.
Here’s the tile with my dots, borders, and string.
I added Purk in most of the sections, leaving only the middle and border empty. I should have added a bit of a border between the sections but it is what it is.
Here is the scan and natural light picture of the tile before shading.
I just kept the shading simple too. I had considered using my gray copic markers to do some shading but really just wanted the simplicity of pencil.
Here are the scan and the natural light pictures of the finished tile. Unfortunately the sun went behind a humongous cloud, so it isn’t as bright as I’d like.
It was a fun little tile to do and it felt good to do some art.
Until next time, God bless,
I almost just took the easy way out and posted about my Bob Ross painting this week. I did the Ebony Sunset from season 1 episode 3.
I had so much trouble with it though! You’re supposed paint it black and let it dry. Then you are supposed to put some red and brown on as the wet base. I really struggled a lot with this one. I need to try it again. I may try it on a smaller paper; the large paper leaves me a bit unbalanced with the overall picture. Oh well, here it is . . .
Well on to this week’s tangling. I decided to to the prompt from Today’s Tangles: Keeping it Classic. I forgot to snap a picture of the string but here it is after I did some tangling.
Here it is after shading.
I used a some of Cyme in one section, then Yin Cut in a big section, Diva Dance, Purk, and Opus. I followed Rick’s lead and did some sproings in the Diva Dance. Well, that’s it for me today. I hope you enjoyed my art. Have you tried painting with Bob Ross? All his PBS shows are on youtube. Have you tried the sproings in diva dance? Rick did them on the rock and roll version but I don’t see why they couldn’t be done in any version.
Until next time,
