This week’s Diva challenge, by guest blogger CZT Jen Crutchfield is to tangle in color. I’m at the beach with minimal art supplies: only my basic Zentangle kit and my travel watercolor kit. A long as you only wanted red, I could show you plenty color on me though. Even though I used SPF 70, I am as red as a lobster. Perhaps I shouldn’t go in the sun at all.
For today at least, I am sitting inside and making art and wishing I was down on the beach. At least I have a great view. The challenge was to use 2-3 colors. I didn’t think simply tangling with my brown, black, and white pens was what she had in mind, so I used brown and 2 shades of blue watercolor to make a beach background.
Then I tangled my colored tile with my three different pens. In brown, I tangled Sand Swirl (?), and Margaret Bremener’s Cockles and mussels. In black, I used Norma Brunell’s Dragonair, snailz, indyrella, onamato, and ???. Finally, I finished with some white tipple and some black aah in the sky as a pale imitation of the fireworks on the beach.
Finally, here is one I did on the 4th using the same patriotic color scheme as Jen.
