CREATIVE TUESDAY

Our host, Mr. Toast, gave us the prompt of "Pattern".
Pattern?  Oh YEAH!!  That's my style!!

I made 2 zentangles (pattern!!!) for this challenge.  I know only one will count, but I want to show the original, and the one where I take it that one step too far!!

*Remember, you can click to enlarge*

This is the first one.  I used a red pen and filled in a heart shape with doodles.  I added some scrolls and other outside pretties.  All of the lines are one stroke. The circles, lines, netting, checks.  Just a single stroke (for the most part!!!) and that was it.  I wanted to do more!!!  So I took a picture here first.

 Here, I went over the lines more, and used a colored pencil to try to do some shading.  I have no idea how to shade something, but I tried.  And going over the lines more turned out good.

Which one do you like better?

I hope you visit the other wonderful artists, and see their "Patterns"!!!

  7. I like them both - but the second one has more depth, of course. Good work!

  8. I also like them both, but I think the second wins for me with the shading giving it depth.

  18. Daniella, I was hoping you might doa zentangle adn you did..adn a heart, no less! Great! TY.

    BTw, a tip on shadows, should you ever do still-lifes in the future--they are always darker closer to the object where there is less light and fade out to nothing as they move away from the object and into the light source with the edges getting softer as more light is diffused. :) Not needed on your piece as its more abstract but thought you might like to know for the future. :)

  19. Whoa! That is amazing -- I've never heard of this technique. I actually think I prefer the unshaded one although they're both beautiful.

  22. I really like your "redwork" Zentangles my dear. The first one is my favorite although I also like your shading you did. I got out my pens today but the Zen for tangling just wasn't happening. Maybe tomorrow...

  23. Both are beautiful Daniella but I like the 2nd one a little better. I like the contrast of light and dark. Have a fabulous day!
