Betweed tangle pattern that Maria Thomas presents in the new zentangle® youtube video inspired this color play. I love the calligraphy pen she uses in the video!
I came across an art case that my mother had given to me about 25 years ago. It contains a watercolor sample set, some oil pastels, and 24 colored pencils. Over the years I dusted it, I moved it, I just didn't use it. I decided to, finally, put it to good use. Seeing all the colorful posts on the flickr zentangle group inspired me to try a little color. Isn't it great that colored pencils don't expire, they still work after all these years!
Yesterday was a day of walking and tangling with a friend. We sat in her backyard enjoying the sun and fall colors sharing tangles and overlooking the beautiful fields and autumn landscape. The clear blue sky and the golden colors of fall were my inspiration. I wanted to keep it light and airy with a hint of summer breeze soon past!
