Just a tiny taste

I haven't been able to participate in the Diva's challenge for a little while, but this one seemed manageable! We are to offer just a tiny taste of tangling, leaving more than half the drawing area blank.

On the upside, these were much faster to do. On the downside, I always want to add more and it was indeed a challenge to 'Stop!' Here are the three tiles I did. It was a good exercise!

Tangles: Beadlines, Parabola
Tangles: Black Pearlz, Knightsbridge, Well 
Tangles: hmm... bits of Maryhill... some sorts of Beadlines...
stripes and wobbly lines.

  2. I like these quite a bit, Margaret. I'm quite fond of the negative space and it's easier for me to stop than to continue. Thanks for always posting the tangles you use. I learn so much from you. Thank you!

  3. These are wonderful! So is "wobbly lines" your newest tangle pattern? (Hehe...) I really like how you used Well as a border. I have never been the greatest fan of that pattern, but I like it better seeing it used this way.

  4. Your shading is amazing and you have managed to leave a good amount of space. Harder than it looks isn't it!

  5. All of your tiles are very beautiful. Your shading is magnificent. And, ahh, that white space - just the right amount.

  7. Just....Wow! One of the many things I love about your art is the way you focus on a tangle or part of a tangle, and give it so much life ( like Well and Parabola above). Amazing!

  9. They are all lovely but my favorite is the third. I perfect little modern art sampling.

  11. That first tile is visually tricky! I think the last is my favorite, with its wobbly lines and shading! So much fun, in just a taste!
