This is the last week of Festina Lente 2019. Actually it ended Sunday, Easter but I can’t share it on a Wednesday before it is finished so, I’m sharing today.
The theme this week is rainbow. The tangles are barberpole, 3-loops-6, fandance, mountain, and eez. The string is 13 from Tangle Patterns and the fragment is T5.
I ended up using the string for a string this week, unlike other weeks where I used it as a fragment/tangle. I have to admit I’m not a fan of the fragments. I guess fragments aren’t my thing.
All the tangles were new to me, well all but barberpole. Although now that I think about it I might have done 3-loop-6 before for a challenge.
I didn’t think I’d like eez but it looks really cool when it is finished and it is really easy to draw. Mountain looks pretty cool too when it is finished. I didn’t care for it at first but liked it when it was complete.
Here is my piece before any shading.
Here’s the picture in natural light before color or shading. Of course the it was a bit overcast.
I added some shading with graphite and then added some watercolor pencils. I’m not very good with them yet, so I’m not really pleased with the final outcome. But here it is. My green went into the yellow a bit too much.
Here it is in natural (but overcast) light.
For whatever reason my white jelly roll pen doesn’t seem to work very well. I had a hard time blending the colors too. Oh well.
I’ve enjoyed doing these larger pieces the last several weeks and I’ve enjoyed learning the new tangles. I’ll have to look back over the new-to-me tangles and incorporate some of them in future tiles.
I wish I had used the music links each week but the truth is that I usually tangle while the family is watching television–well, whatever DVD we’ve chosen for the evening. Throughout most of the last month we’ve been watching the TV series White Collar. I like the first seasons but not the last ones because I believe in redemption and that people can change.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you had a great Easter. I’ve been reading through the Gospels this month and have enjoyed refreshing the life of Jesus, His sacrifice for us, His resurrection, and His appearances after the resurrection in my mind. It was a good Easter, even though my family wasn’t feeling well and we were unable to go to church.
I hope you have a good week. Mine’s been busy and will be busy for the rest of it as well but good.
Until next time, God bless,
