Zentangle Weeekly Challenge #54 - Purple


In December I found a pretty purple Copic pen at a local art store and wanted to try doing a Zentangle with color. I also discovered that we had a box of watercolor pencils that I've never used and wanted to incorporate those. I chose the basic grid design based on something from the "Time to Tangle with Colors" book by Marie Browning, but chose different tangles to "fill". As my first try with these medium, I'm happy with the end result, but it sure points out that color, shading, perspective... all take skill and practice! This was done quite a bit before this week's challenge to do a tangle in purple, but, it's one I did with purple in mind, and I'm happy with it, so I'm going to add it to the weekly challenge. :)

love the movement in this piece - feels like the grids are racing back and forth - cool.
