This was a fun challenge this week.
Well, you can always tell the Tanglers who are trying to get their feet wet. I just piled so much stuff on my challenge today. I haven't worked with any of these patterns in a Tangle before, so Today is their Day. Besides Joyce Evans's Bugles, I used two of Michele Beauchamp's patterns, Blooming Butter and Brayd, and Maria Thomas's, Jetties,
One looks back at a Tangle one has done, and there is more that could still be done. Why didn't I add this line here, or that spot of shadow or cross-hatching there. But that is the Beauty of this art. Those seasoned practitioners who really understand ZenTangling and its sub-set derivations, and truly get it, and "Know when to put the pen down." If the piece needs stuff to be there, by all means pile 'er on. But there should be some intelligence behind the steering wheel of that delivery van. I think I am going to get me some fresh air on my next Challenge. At least I will start out with that in mind. I love what I see the CZT's and other artists create. Their work is so delightful, and clean, you just delight in what you see.
This is why I am so excited about this art. Every day the Circus comes to town. Pick your venue and dig right in there. Anybody can do this. Can't draw. "Think, Not?" You Will surprise your self. Seek out a CZT and it will be a done deal. (A CZT is a Certified ZenTangle Teacher.)
