Color!!! How I love adding color to my Zentangle work. Yes, now it's a ZIA - Zentangle Inspired Art. Thank you Diva, for suggesting that we use color this week for the challenge.
I used a design that I had used before for this piece but wanted to try a different color scheme and different materials. This time I pulled out my Inktense pencils. I used them with watercolor techniques. The tangles were added with pens. For this piece I used both colored Microns and Staetler pens.
As you can see in the picture I took when I was 'in progress', I'm still working on perfecting my techniques. (Picture taken late at night.) I put my finger in the wet paint in the purple area at the upper left edge. And then I got a backwash in the purple petal at the bottom left. And several areas are nowhere as smooth or have the gradation I would like. But since I am following the 'no mistakes' philosophy, I forged ahead. Once I got done I looked for those areas that bothered me at first. I have trouble finding them so I'm betting you won't find them either!!! LOL!
