I wanted to experiment with Copada and I already had a "string" of interlocking circles waiting for the right inspiration, so here is my contribution to Zentangle Weekly Challenge #85 - UMT (Use my Tangle) #85 - Copada (Iamthedivaczt.blogspot.ca). Originally it was going to be the traditional black/white/shading... but it was calling out for a bit of color. I'm afraid of using color as I don't have an art background and very little experience, but I guess you learn some by trying - so here it is. After seeing everyone put their "blind" string before and after online, I thought that was a good idea - especially when I'm trying something sort of new or experimental; so I've also included my uncolored ZIA. Am I happy with it? Sort of - though the colors are a bit washed out (I was going for subtle), and next time I try color, I'll go a bit bolder. Also, much of the shading doesn't show up on scanning, but if I darken the original, it looks too dark for my liking.
