Color - Pink-purple-blue


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!

  2. Such stunning colours, beautifully done. The patterns are wonderful and , like you, I have found that patterning over colour hides a multitude of sins.

  3. I know you love colour and you often include it in your tiles - but you've excelled yourself with these stunning colours! Love them - as for mistakes, nope, I can't see any at all.

  5. Sue, I am in love with your tile and your colors! This is really so beautiful. I just got a set of Inktense pencils and I am afraid to apply water! Silly, I know. Maybe you've inspired me though!
