Dreaming Girl

Following our move across town I discovered this small drawing I'd done in university (a lo-o-o-ong time ago). You can see why Zentangle was such an immediate *click* for me!

The paper is non-archival and has yellowed over the years.

I used technical pens years ago, and always loved that medium. I rediscovered some of those pens too, following the move. That pattern on the bottom edge is something I used frequently back then and I've done it in some recent zentangle drawings, too. Although we don't use the term "uni" here, I've called the tangle D'Uni. That pattern on the shawl is interesting too!

  2. Wow, Margaret. When I first looked, this felt kind of Aubrey Beardsley to me. (I was a big Beardsley fan in my school days.) It's very easy to see that you naturally connect with Zentangle. Thanks for sharing. Have a great new year! Looking forward to seeing what tangly treasures you have up your sleeve for the coming year:) Carole
