Challenge #255 -
Ghosts of Tangles Past
I didn't get my piece posted for last week's Diva Challenge #255, so here it is.
When I was first exposed to the Zentangle process in 2010, I became obsessed. Everywhere I went I carried my drawing pad and created a new Zentangle piece several times a week. I scanned in one of my first pieces 8/2/2010. I had titled this piece "Thru the Garden" and tried to incorporate all the things I would experience in a garden. I tended to fill every nook and cranny and began each piece with a familiar object or place to inspire me.
I was using a Kohinoor Rapidograph pen for most of my work. I was fascinated with line quality, textures and the detail tangling brought to my creative process. No shading.
For my redo, I retained the original string. I scanned in the original piece in and looked over all the elements and chose the ones I was going to keep. My work is now more open the tangles and textures more defined, shading is a Major part of my work
I had written a poem for this piece but I couldn't find the Toad until I looked at the scanned image on screen:
Through the garden,
I see a Toad,
He's following me,
The Koi in the pond,
