Orbs vs Straight lines

Orbs vs straight lines. Last week the Diva challenged us to do a tile with straight lines only. I didn't get around to completing it last week but when the Diva challenge this week was to use Orbs, I knew I needed to do both. So here are the two tiles I did as a result.

Pink and blue zendala

This is what's been on my work space for the past few days. It started out a simple zendala that I created using my Ravensberger Mini Mandala-Designer. This tool is aimed more at kids but I found it was great fun for creating zendala strings too! After I created the string I added color using my Tombow markers with a watercolor technique, Then I tangled away. Finally I added additional shading with coordinating colored pencils and a few highlights with a white chalk pencil.

Here's the start with the base washes of color.

This zendala is a monotangle of the tangle pattern 'Nzeppel. I've done two versions, the basic pattern is done in the center and the Crazy version is around the edge. Also you can see it shaded differently too. It's a fun tangle whichever way you do it.
