The Diva´s challenge this week is of course Back To Basics. I get back to this, because this is the most important thing about zentangle. Lets be clear: this is the purpose of zentangle. I try to do this every day. There might be a day when I don´t, but that´s a day when something is missing. Most of the time I show my tile if not in this blog, then in a community on Fb. Another thing about this is: I only use a white or a black tile. Not a colored. Not color pens or pencils. It is a meditation and it is the process, not the result that is important. Here is my tile of today (made this evening):
I used string 164 . I needed to slow down, there has been many busy things going on here. I can see that on my lines, which are drawn quite shaky and irregular at the start, but in the end they stabilized. Ping (Yu Ru Chen)is obvious the start. Then came Puf (Carole Ohl) and this is much more in focus. After that I draw Lily eyes (Skinnystraycat) and Star Map (Suzanne McNeill). I intended to take a pic before shading but forgot all about it. I usually do because at that moment I am just in the zone and the plans and intentions are far away. I love that.
