Well, I think I’ve given up on Inktober. Considering there’s only one day left and I haven’t done any drawing in a week, so I basically did half of Inktober.
I decided to see what the prompt was at Today’s Tangles: Keeping it Classic. That prompt was a very simple one: draw some connected loops.
I went with ‘Nzepple, Shattuck, and Florz for fill tangles.
I didn’t actually get a picture in natural light but I did take a picture.
I went for some simple shading.
Here it is a bit smaller, which doesn’t amplify the shading I didn’t get smoothed out so well.
Here is the picture I took of it.
I like how it turned out. It was an easy tile to draw and stress free. I didn’t feel any pressure doing it. Of course all the tangles I used are easy ones or ones I’ve used before, so that may be a part of the lightness and ease of tangling this one.
I appreciate the simple prompts!
Thanks for stopping by. What are the tangles that are stress free for you?
Until next time,
Once again I participated with Today’s Tangles: Keeping it Basic prompt #TTKICPrompt072219. She suggested we “slow down” when tangling this week, which I did and I think my lines were a bit smoother.
Sandy said that the string this week was inspired by 59th Street Bridge song by Simon and Garfunkel. So it is a simple resemblance to a bridge; nothing too difficult this week.
I chose Shattuck and Knightsbridge because they are easy and I remember them without looking them up. Then chose Echoism because I thought it would play nice in the c space at the top. Then comes my oops. I frequently confuse Cubine and Cadent. I think I do that because I learned them about the same time but that is the only reason. I love Cadent and used it so much when I first learned to tangle about 10 years ago. So that is why I’ve included Cadent in my tile, which was not in the tangle pool to choose from.
Here is a scan of my tile before shading.
I really enjoyed tangling this tile. Echoism is one I haven’t used much and enjoyed it. Here’s a picture I took in natural light.
I’d started to lay down some graphite and remembered that I needed to scan and take a picture first. That is why the lines on some of Shattuck on the right are so dark.
I enjoyed shading this one too. Here’s the scan.
Here is the picture I took in natural light, albeit a bit overcast.
I really love how ‘puffy’ the top center part with Echoism looks.
Well, that’s it for me today. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have been encouraged to put pen to paper. If I can do it, anyone can.
Until next time,
