Diva Challenge #315: "Tangle study = Molygon"

Finally able to get something together for the Diva Challenge. I do miss participating regularly, but have to make some decisions about where I spend my time.  Have to admit, part of what made it possible to participate is the tile I used is one that I had prepared and worked on in a recent class. I had not finished puting  tangles in it so decided to add this week's focus.

Have to admit that I have not done Molygon since it was first introduced. Not one of my favorites and not particularly thrilled with the way that these turned out. I like the tile but not how Molygon turned out. part of my "problem" is that I tend to do things in a smaller size. Do not think that this works with this tangle. I also did not get quite enough lunar shape to them also. Well it is what it is.
Here is what I came up with. I hope you enjoy it.

Tangles used: Cadent,  Poke root, Poke leaf, Henna Drum, ING variation, and Molygon
As I indicated above the tile was from a class I was doing. We were doing water color washes to add color. This was done with Faber-Castell  water colored pencils. After used the pencils to put down the color used a wet brush  to blend and spread out. This was just one part of the class as we also did a larger piece using alcohol inks. Was a fun class.  But I digress.
Did not do any other shading or highlighting on this. Thought about doing a little on the Molygon but decided not to.

I have not looked at any of the other pieces posted. Hopefully will have some time to do this later. If you have not been to I am the Diva, would encourage you to do so. There are always some great works of art.  

Thanks for visiting. As always, comments are welcomed, encouraged, and appreciated.

Go Tangle !!


  1. Well Donald, I think Molygon is great next to Henna Drum! But I also think that this tangle will not be a macc-and-cheese on for most of us.

  2. Lovely tile, Donald, and I agree with your words.. I also did Molygon too small to do much with but it is growing on me as I try to draw it bigger...or shade it differently. I do like your colours here. Axxx

  3. A valiant attempt! Looks very happy!

  4. It seems that a lot of folks felt the same about Molygon. Sometimes it flows for me, and others not so much. It still works even if it is not "perfect". I enjoyed the nice tile you made with the rainbow colors.

  5. I agree with you, Molygon is not my favorite but I guess it's good to push ourselves.
