Loop-de-loop

Well, I think I’ve given up on Inktober. :D 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,

Bridge String with Shattuck, Knightsbridge, Cadent, and Echoism

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,
