This blog is about some of the things in my life that I enjoy doing - Zentangles®, cycling, and needle crafts. Hopefully you will enjoy the variety and may it encourage you to begin or follow your own adventures. Welcome, Donald Wilka
The focus tangle for this week at Square One is Rixty. This was developed by Maria as a birthday present for Rick when he turned sixty. I have used this before, but have tended to use it on Renaissance tiles. Not sure but this may have been the first time that I did it in black and white. I wanted to try something different with it also. One thing I did was to biggify it a little. I also tried to do a "tango". I think I used that word correctly. It is combining two tangles. The shading was a big thing on this. It is okay but I have to admit the idea that I had in my head looked a whole lot better. This is something that I have to work on continuously. Some day I hope to be able to shade like some of the other artists I see. Here is what I came up with. I hope you enjoy it.
Tangles used: Rixty, Tierso, Florz
The shading was done with 2B, 4B & 6B pencils
