Zentangle weekly challenge number three: draw the pencil string with your eyes shut! This was very interesting. I 'stringed'* two tiles, and thought I was making big hand movements, but when I opened my eyes the string was rather tight and didn't look very interesting. But I persevered.
Frankly, it was so interesting I had to do another.
Below is the second one. I thought it needed the bubbles on the right to balance it. The shading doesn't show up very well.
I like this method! I'm a bit of a control freak when it comes to my art, but I also recognize that often the best work happens when I don't really know what's going on. So anything like this that takes control out of my hands is probably a good thing. :-)
I'm looking forward to using this method again, but right now... MY ELDEST DAUGHTER IS GETTING MARRIED ON SATURDAY AND THINGS ARE A LITTLE BUSY AROUND HERE!!!
* There. We now have a new Zentangle-inspired verb: "to string". In context: "I stringed the tabletop and then tangled it with a Sharpie."
