Zentangle Inspired Art Piece

Good morning...

Just a quick post.  I wanted to share with you  what I made yesterday at work.  I colored it with Sharpie and Bic Mark It markers with the exception of the background.  The background was done using my Prismacolor Premiere Colored Pencils and blended using mineral spirits.

This is a free form tangle which means no starting string or border was used.  I just started drawing.

Journey Into The World of Zentangles

Good morning...  

I just wanted to share with you my latest hobby.  I started doing Zentangles a couple years ago but only created a couple pieces.  I never really dove into it.  That has changed recently.

At work, we are in our slow season (work in a call center) and the call volume is down.  In between calls, I needed something to keep boredom at bay.  Yes, I can read books and I have.  But I wanted something more.  Zentangles fit the bill.  It is portable and I can take my pens, paper and Zentangle books with me.  I also take my Prismacolor Premier colored pencils or my Shinhan Touch Duel Tip Alcohol markers.  I don't have to take my coloring tools but makes it more fun.  I am in the process of learning how to shade with the colored pencils which are wax based and my alcohol markers.

I am going through a course book that I got from Amazon called One Tangle A Day ... A 6 Week Course.  In the video below, I share with you some of my progress.  A couple of the pieces were done this past Spring. But most of them were done in the past week.
