What? not another challenge! I came across Zentangle at a couple of my fellow Drawing Lab student’s blogs. I saw what wonderful Zentangles they were creating, and had to investigate. Here is a brief description of Zentangle (taken from Zentangle):
Zentangle is an easy to learn method of creating beautiful images from repetitive patterns. It is a fascinating new art form that is fun and relaxing. It increases focus and creativity. Zentangle provides artistic satisfaction and an increased sense of personal well being. Zentangle is enjoyed by a wide range of skills and ages and is used in many fields of interest.
The coordinator of this particular challenge is Laura Harms of I am the diva – Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT). Challenge #15 was to use only curved lines. And here is my very first Zentangle:
Not sure if I did it right, but it was fun! As always, I am late to the challenge, so I will have Challenges 1 -14 to make up. And, I’m finding this as a great pastime while I wait for things – it’s very portable. I have exhausted all the levels of Sudoku, Hidato, Ken Ken, and am finishing up the black belt level Kakuro. And, I am not ready to tackle Easy Breezy Crosswords – I am better with numbers than words. They have been my constant companions through all the ice hockey practices, volleyball practices, and waiting for kids in general. Now I can do Zentangle while I wait for my daughter at guitar lessons and physical therapy :-). So, if you are interested and up to the challenge, check it out!
