AEDM -day 5


Day 5 takes me in a different direction.  Margaret over at Enthusiastic Artist is an amazing Zentangle artist and is going to give away a dozen of her drawings in celebration of one year of blogging.  In return she's asked people to send her traditional Zentangle tiles, so I complied.  I drew a few, these three were the best though I only sent her a couple.  A traditional tile is 3.5" square, is divided by a randomly drawn pencil "string" and then tangled within the string.

I find the creation of these very relaxing and rewarding - you still need to consider artistic principles like light/dark, contrast of shapes, shading, etc. but it's accomplished in a repetitive, relaxing mode.  And I can do it anywhere - sitting in front of the TV, in a waiting room, on break at work.....

Check out all the MANY other creative endeavors on day 5 here at Art Every Day Month.
