Letter Project - A

I've been trying to think up something to write about. Since I would like to learn moe Zentangles, I decided to do it alphabetically. So, I made a tangle using the letter A, and used tangles whose names began with the Letter A. Here it is:

This uses Agua, Ahh, and Archer.

More to come!

Watercolor added

Here's a tangle I did last year. I looked at it last week and decided to try adding a bit of color so I used some watercolors on it.

No borders

One of the comments (well, OK, the ONLY comment so far) that I got was to try "not outlining the sections in ink."  Well, I think I've done that in this piece. No borders - the art just sorta floats... hmm... I'll be trying more and posting them as they are completed.

I called this one BUG.

I don't have a title for this one.

I also scanned them on a dark background to make them POP on the page.

More tangles

I finally scanned some more of my tangles. Here's a few I've done this month.

I like the mix of dark and light spaces on the one above.

Just more artwork.This was a smaller one I did. I used Euca, Dragonaire and Bubbles tangles. The part that looks like a parking lot was actually a "mistake" although there are no mistakes in tangling. SO, I called it Parking Lot. I'll have to use it again - perhaps submit it as a "new" tangle -- but there's probably one out there similiar that I don't know about.

Here's another:

This one uses Punzel (get it? Rapunzel - the long hair braid), Tink, BB and Box spirals. I couldn't find a name for the circle spirals, but I'm sure there is one.  I need to learn how to do the shading.

It's Sunday - time for Everquest!

More Sundoo

My new hobby gets me off the computer for a bit each day. My other hobby is an online game called EQ2. Anyway, while I'm drawing,  I connect to to look for patterns for my next Zentangle.
Here's another tangle - I probably should call them zentangle inspired, since I don't always follow the "rules".

Similiar to the first one. I was trying out a new tangle called Sundoo. I like it as a border.

First post with art

I found Zentangles(R) on the web last August and was delighted to find something artistic that I could actually do.

Here's one that I've recently completed. Thanks Maria and Rick!
