Northern lights

I saw pictures of the Northern Lights on TV and on the internet. I went right to my window and looked for them but I got nothing, nada, zip. So this is how I imagined they might look in a zentangle world.

This 3 1/2" tile was done by using my Tombow markers with a watercolor technique to create a background for the whole piece first. When it was fully dry I tangled using my Micron pen and then added shading and colored accents with colored pencils.

ALSO - Today is the last day to enter my giveaway for my 100,000 page view. To enter, see the blog post from last Sunday.


  1. oh nice! I have seen them, twice, and once they WERE green :) although I gather they can be multi-coloured too.

  2. Beautiful! You can tell that you were really inspired!

  3. This is so beautiful! I saw an aurora borealis in the sky once and it was an awesome sight.

  4. What can I say? Just beautiful! And it's so evocative of the real thing - beautifully done w/ the addition of watercolor.

  5. Who knew you could "paint" the Northern Lights using Zentangle? YOU! Fantastic job.
