Dylusion Spray Inked Tiles

Here are three of Zentangle Zendala's I painted by spraying Dylusions spray ink.  I first sprayed water on the tiles, followed by spraying blue and yellow Dylusions spray ink.  I let it sit for a minute to let the water interact with the ink and then I gently laid down some paper towels.  I did not leave the paper towels lay for more than a moment or two because the towels soak up too much paint.  I am very please with these colors.

Blue Zendala

Here is another blue Zendala.  I sprayed the tile with water, dylusion ink and blotted it with paper towel.  I am into the color blue lately because I was drawing ocean-like Zentangles on large round Zendala's.  I was really pleased with the way the dylusion sprayed tiled turned out, lovely colors.  I will post the sample tiles I sprayed, the colors are so nice and summery.

Underwater Zen

My new Zendala, an underwater scene using Zentangle patterns.  I plan on submitting this design for an upcoming class.  I painted the paper with blue and green watercolor pan paints.  Using a micron black pen and shading with a blue prismacolor pencil and graphite.

Mandela on Opus Tile

Just finished this Mandela on a Zentangle Opus Tile, 10-1/2 x 10-1/2 inches and a Sakura Micron Pen.  The top tile is drawn with no shading, the second tile has been shaded with graphite pencil.
This will be use as a possible class to teach.  The tangles used starting from the center.  No sure what the name of the center tangle is, if any, just a organic-like floral tangle.  Next is Pinball, this is my design.  Avreal, Isochor, Hybred, Betweed, "Nzeppel and Yew-Dee by Peg Farmer, CZT.

 I have been working on some Mandella designs to present to South Side Brushes for a seminar I will be teaching them next year.  I like the format of this design, however, I want to change the pattern that is yellow to another tangle and I am not happy with the look of the colors.  The teal and orange need to be softened.

Zentwining



These Zentangle drawings are called Zentwining created by Lynn Mead, CZT.  This is a new tangle she has created and I wanted to play around with it to see how it worked.
