Zentangle is a beautiful ceremony and tradition. It acts like sugar - melts and mixes into anything it dissolves.Read More
… it is fun to see how using few colors and mixes, one cannot come up with beautiful washes. These kinds of experiments remind me to tangle, paint, explore more and more. After all, that’s what creative minds do. The whole joy is to allow oneself to process their maximum best!Read More
This week's prompt pattern is M-Line , in Zentangle India Facebook Group. This is my try on the tile, few hours of me with just some interesting color pencils, graphite and my all time favorite Sakura Micron Pens.
Few days ago, I purchased new watercolour journal from FurryTails suggested by my dear friend VandanaKrishna -my tangler friend and also a Certified Zentangle Teacher from Bangalore. FurryTails are mumbai based company, creating handmade 100% cotton sketchbook journals. They have couple of variety both in landscape and portrait. If you are interested, you can check their Instagram Page and order one for yourself.
So this one that I have is a 300 gsm ColdPress Watercolour Journal. I generally like to do Zentangle Inspired Art, which involves inking with micron pens, which I realized is not so easy to do on the paper. So now I am thinking of doing line-art with watercolor pencil or color pencil . I have been experimenting to add watercolours from the palette that I recently bought Mungyo Professional 12HalfPan set from Korea, using the traditional watercolour synthetic brushes.
So here are my first two pages -
We often say “There are no mistakes in Zentangle”. What we really mean is, every ruined artwork has a say into this world. That we can transform it totally make it more worthy, more lovable!
One such page got transformed into this fun illustration.
So you can see how the Christmas tree string gave me an option to create this fun house, with dingbatz styled Zentangle train (with Thomas engine) and leaving its tangled filled smoke in the air! It nearly expressed the excitement I was holding to in the moment.
A new pen is always challenges you to bring out something hidden component in you! So, I tried and tested on this hotpressed 100%cotton cardstock with Faber-Castell Pitt BrushPens and I really loved the way it turned out. I wonder, why I haven’t used it much?
