Bookplates and some colour
In this drawing I have used Derwent pencils to colour the background squares, used Staedtler Triplus fineliners to draw Zentangles in them with matching colours, used a beautiful Matisse Ink to paint the background of the Marasu pattern (those three Zentangles) and then a Pigma Micron to draw in the Zentangles. Lots of mediums here ... then one of my friends directed me to this web site where Australian artist Loretta Grayson does the most amazing art work ... I'm not even sure she knows about Zentangle ... but wow - worth checking it out....http://rettg.blogspot.com/ ... sigh ... mine pales in comparison really. I need some more vibrancy in the colours, so I think I will get the Derwent Inktense pencils out and give them a workout soon. I really like the idea of her methods, using pastels and marking the texture in with a stylus...definately food for thought there.
Okay hope you all have a great tangling weekend ... I'm going to be out of blogland for a few days while I prepare for my three workshops in Sydney ... I can't believe they are next week ... time has snuck up on me once again. Happy Tangling ... Jane x
