Challenge #326

Monotangle 'n-Zeppel
One of my favorite tangles because you can use it on almost every drawing to complete and balance the drawing.
First I drew a grid with a white Gelly-roll on beige paper.

After that I drew with a sanguine fine liner and left the white grit visible.
Than I colored shadows and highlights wit colored pencils.


Vorige week heb ik een workshop Gemstones gegeven.
Hier het resultaat van deze geslaagde middag..

Ook heb ik een restje kaartenpapier vol getangled.

Al met al een lekker creatieve week.

Challenge # 325 and Opus Tile

Another challenge by Jessica Davies as a guest for the Diva.
We should use the tangle Pea-nuckle
Not my favorite tangle but I gave it a try.

Drew it with a blue Micron and colored with Polichromos.

The Opus tile is finished.
I drew it with a black Micron and colored and shaded with Polichromos colored pencils.

The tile is too big for my scanner so I took a photo, but it looks like the colors are not as bright as they really are.
                                  (I drew six insects in it for you to find!)

Challenge # 324

Tangled Heart
The challenge this week comes from Jessica Davies.
She's the first tangler who does the challenge while Laura and her family are on vacation.
My contribution is a part of an OPUS tile I am working on.
This is just a part of the tile, and I hope that next week I can show it finished.

Still a lot of work to do!

Challenge # 322 , Gems and Pearls

Aquafleur is the tangle for the challenge this week.
A lovely tangle, I should use it more because its so decorative.

I drew it with a blue Micron and shaded with Deep Colbalt and Indigo Polichromos.

Also drew a Zia with Gems and Pearls.
Pearls are still very difficult, still have to practice and find step-outs how to draw them well.

Challenge # 321

"Non dominant - Aura Challenge"
I have to draw with my left hand, and that's not easy.
I think this is a real good challenge, especially for the brain.

Shading this one is even more difficult than I expected.

Some time ago I made a Mooka frame and did not have inspiration for the inside.
This morning I found it again, colored it and drew Dingbatz in the center.

Challenge # 318

Diptisch or in Dutch Tweeluik

Also did some drawing in the weekend.

And this is what I did yesterday

Also look at my Dingbatz I did last week.

Mapje met harmonica boekje

Vorig jaar heb ik een mapje gemaakt met daarin een harmonica boekje met pagina's van 10 X 10 cm.
Het is nu helemaal af met aan beide zijden getanglede pagina's.

    Het mapje met harmonica papier klaar om te gaan tekenen.

    De strook word in het mapje gestoken zodat je het eruit kan 
    halen om te tekenen.

    De eerste bladzijde.

    En zo is de strook getangled.

    De witte linker pagina's zijn aan de achterzijde getangled.

Vorig jaar zomer heb ik hier een workshop van gegeven.
Heb je belangstelling om ook een keer zo'n mapje te maken stuur me dan een mailtje.
(Zie tabblad "cursussen")
Bij voldoende deelnemers wil ik nogmaals een workshop organiseren in Dronten.

Challenge # 312

"Coffee, Tea or me!"
Spil something on your tile to create a string.
I spilled some aquarel paint in blue and yellow.
(I hope you can see the colors, the scanner does not show them so well)

I have also been practicing pearls and gems with water color pencils.
Colored pencils is much easier I think. 
Pearls are difficult !!!

    14 X 14 cm.

Challenge # 311 / Eekhoorntjes

I don't seem to have inspiration for the challenge this week,
I tried real hard but I'm not happy about the result.

Al een paar weken bezig geweest met deze kleurpotlood tekening.
Het is wel jammer dat de kleuren op de foto fletser zijn dat het origineel.
(Ik ben niet zo'n goede fotograaf)
De pase-partout is nu nog van geknipt papier, ik moet er nog een laten snijden met een ovaal.

Compleet met omlijsting is hij ongeveer A3

Challenge # 304

Waybob is the new tangle from Zentangle HQ.
In the past I have done a lot of Celtic braiding, and it's still one of my favorite things.
For me Waybob is no tangle but a tutorial for Celtic work that you can combine with tangles.
And that's what I did for this challenge.
