In the month of August 2019, I will be sending out two String Prompts for the Zentangle India Community. For the first timers here, who do not understand the string component - String is something we draw with pencil on the Zentile(R), that divides the tile into the sections as we want to tangle and not tangle. The whole point is to have fun and enjoy the intuitive process of tangling.
So today I picked up a tile that I did about 10 days ago. The more I looked at it, I felt that it needed something more! So then after a heart-full cooking, I sat over my desk (sacredspace),
Zentangle is a beautiful ceremony and tradition. It acts like sugar - melts and mixes into anything it dissolves.
… 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!
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.
I finished my tan tile and excitedly showed it to my mom and asked her what it resembles to, and in an instant, she said, that it looks like Oil Floating over water and we both agreed on how some patterns appear over our Indian Curries, when oil mixes with the water. So, that inspired me to keep this tangle named as OFloat for “Oil Float”.
