This is what happens when you are away with no tools except the 2 items shown on the left, and one-half piece of light blue paper--and you want to tangle something.
In this case, I didn't even have a graphite pencil for shading, only this stub of a Rainbow Lead Pencil which is fast disappearing on me. So I just worked with what I had.
Lighting in the photo isn't great, but there you have it: a Bic pen plus the Rainbow Lead stub. No regular pencil for shading, and I couldn't even see well in the low light. Tangles are Tripoli and N'Zepple.
And then of course I couldn't stop there, so I mirrored it with the iPhone app (which allowed me to do some color adjustments too).
I'm a textile artist (traditional rug hooking, punch needle rug hooking, and other textile arts), long-time meditator and coach, focused on learning about the interplay of art, creativity, and mindfulness every day.
NEXT INTRO TO ZENTANGLE CLASS:
No immediate group classes scheduled (I'm always open to hearing about a good venue in Western Massachusetts. I am always happy to teach 1-1 and/or in a small group in your home.
Come and amaze yourself!
