This week’s diva challenge is to go big. The only other tiles I have are 4×4 and that didn’t seem much larger than the normal tiles, so I pulled out my 6×6 sketchbook that I hardly ever (not in several years) use. I also pulled out my graphic one sakura pen.
I checked the focus tangle for Square Oneurely Zentangle, even though I knew I wouldn’t be able to post my tile there since it will be larger than the normal tiles. Tipple is their focus tangle. The tangle/pattern of the day today is Twisted Corners and yesterday’s was Lupin, over on Pattern-Collections.com. These both looked promising as well.
Then I checked the string of the day there and then over on tanglepatterns. The one one tangle patterns, #250, appealed to me, so I went with it.
The first tangle I drew was Knightsbridge. The contrast of lots of black resonated with me as I drew and selected my tangles. The next choice was Hollibaugh, for the same reason. Then I went with Tipple. These are all comfort tangles for me, which does not mean that I draw them well, only that I like them and the balance of white and black with them.
Then I decided to add Lupin in. Finally I decided to add Twisted Corners in the middle.
My shading was kind of all over the place with this one. Definitely no “fixed” light source today; I just wasn’t feeling it. It’s tough to do much good shading with so much black–it just doesn’t glide.
Have a great day!
Until next time, God bless,
