It’s been a while since I’ve drawn a Zentangle Inspired Art piece for “I Am The Diva.” I love doing her challenges but of late, I seem to have been very busy with other projects. However, today I produced a piece using the new tangle Aquafleur, created by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas. You can see the instructions on how to draw this beautiful tangle by going to: http://archive.constantcontact.com/fs119/1101168872594/archive/1116292742131.html
The name they gave this new tangle intrigued me. Of course, I had to Google the word. The results were lots of sites related to aquariums and decorating them. Some of the greens known as “Aquafleur” look like this:
This water plants are a far cry from the tangle drawn below. Despite the fact that the tangle’s name has no bearing on the real life plant, I loved Maria’s creation of this organic and flowing tangle. My rendition is far from the lovely pieces created by Maria, but I enjoyed drawing my own version of this tangle, shown below:
I used Micron .01 pen to draw this tangle and then added color using Prismacolor pencils. It is shaded with graphite pencil. Zinger is the name of the tangle on the outer rim of this ZIA. This one is drawn on 8″ x 8″ card stock. Do hope you like it. I look forward to your comments.
