Exploring Hollibaugh

Hollibaugh is one of the first tangles I learned - and it's one of the first ones that I teach in my Basics class. So I really wanted to come up with a little something different here.

I started with one of my hand-colored zendala tiles and then cut small circles out of a slightly lighter hand-colored tile. The tangle is done with a sepia Micron Pigma pen and the shading with a coordinating Prismacolor pencil. I glued the small circles on after I had done most of the tangle and its shading. I added less lines and less shading to give the smaller circles more of a pop.


  1. I really like this technique - I would have never guessed how you did this one. Great job!

  2. Like Kathy I never guessed how you did this. Great idea, so thank you for sharing.
    The zendala is very, very beautiful.

  3. Really like the look of this, The work you put in, makes this look amazing!

  4. Very interesting! I'm sure I'd see it in person but here it looks as if you drew the circles on the paper and left them lighter when you did the wash.

  5. Really like your 'take' on the challenge :)
