Small, Medium, and Large

 Recently on Zentangle All Around -
my Facebook group -
guest poster Yvonne Westover challenged us to tangle the
same basic piece of art in different sizes.
 I began with a two inch tile - a Bijou from Zentangle.
Some call this a twinchie.
I decided to go with the wreath shape
and picked some basic organic tangles to use. 
I was surprised how much I could fit into a
small two inch tile. 
 Next I moved on to my middle size in the grouping.
This medium size is about 4 inches across.
Same organic tangles, just with more
attention to detail.
This is where the challenge ended -
with small and bigger -
but I wanted to carry the challenge another step.
I pulled out a 10.5" Opus tile and got to work.
This one took me a couple nights to complete.

I used the same tangles - 
To complete the piece, I pulled out a
red gelly roll pen and filled in some of those
little tipple. Zing! I loved the bit of color!
And last, I shaded the flux.  Nothing else.
Just the flux.

I love the way this tile ended up.
You never quite know going in how things will turn out. 

Why don't you give it a try?
Take 3 different size tiles -
or draw 3 different size tiles in your sketchbook -
limit yourself to 3 or 4 tangles
and give it a whirl.
I would love to see what you do.

Feel free to post your art at
Zentangle All Around
on Facebook.

  3. Your splashes of red paired with just the Printemps shading make the large tile really striking & I suspect the smaller ones would also be were you to apply both to them also. The wreath design is a perfect showcase for your style - these pieces are unmistakably "The Creator's Leaf" designs.
