Color, COLOR! I love using color in my zentangle inspired artwork. So much so that when the diva asked us to use color in her challenge this week I couldn't decide because there are so many ways I love to use color. Ultimately I decided to combine the latest zendala dare here too. This is Erin's, from The Bright Owl, dare #73. This zendala template just cried out for color to me. I used my Tombow markers like watercolor paint to achieve the soft gradations and then added tangles with a pink Sakura Micron pen. I also decided to let my tangles be simple so the color could shine through.
As I was working on this I also played with my full sheets that I hand color and then cut down to size. This is a sneak peek of the one I just did. I'm not sure yet if I will cut it into 3 1/2" tiles, zendala tiles, or larger pieces for ZIAs. Keep checking this blog for updates!
This sheet measures 22" x 30". I placed my zendala tile pictured above on the sheet so you can see the relative size.
