Here lately I've gotten the urge to tangle again - hadn't done it in quite a while. In fact, this page started as a few separate "test run" tangles to try new patterns and the next thing you know I decided to fill the entire 8.5" x 11" page - just to see if I could -
it took all afternoon but I DID IT!! My one ink pen is running dry now - how cool is it to use the ink completely out of a pen?!
This type of doodling is supposed to be relaxing - and it is - when you use common sense and don't spend an entire afternoon hunched over and squinting while you draw. It is a good thing that I have SO much common sense that I can squander an afternoon's worth and still have plenty left (I hope) -
Look close on the right hand side and see my favorite part of this sketch - See the two little critters? They represent our two boys!! Connor had on his Domo t-shirt and I couldn't resist trying my hand at it - even made extra mouths as part of the design. . .
Learned yesterday how to draw the twisty, curvy tangle called "Paradox" that I've admired for a long time and how to make leaves - so they are all over the place - like Kudzu! This form of artistic expression is really fun and forgiving - if you mess up you can just color that area black and continue on - all you need is paper, a marker or two and a grey pencil for shading - try it!!!
