This month, our sponsor for the Freebie Progressive Monthly Challenge over at The Outlawz is "me"! Some of you may know that I am a Certified Zentangle Teacher, so I designed an angelfish using some tangles. I also created one without tangles so that participants can skip the tangled parts or add their own. I hope you all enjoy Swish the Angelfish.
This one was colored with Copics and mounted on an Oxide Distress Ink background. Swish is full of tangles in this version.
It important for you to know
that these images, while using some of the patterns of Zentangle are in
actuality ZIA’s (Zentangle Inspired Art). The Zentangle® method is an
easy to learn, relaxing and fun way to use structured patterns to create
beautiful images. Find out more about this method from the founders of
this meditative approach to art on their website. Zentangle.com
If you are interested in seeing what I do with Zentangle, I invite you to visit my other blog, Tangle Street.
Here is a simplified version of Swish with some organic tangles added as water foliage. (Colored pencils with Gamsol.)
