....And I do mean a LONG time before zentangles took everyone by storm, I had a sketchbook where I would take a piece of a magazine photo, glue it somewhat in the center (though I don't suppose it would HAVE to be centered) and then took heavy Sharpies and looked for *line* in the remnant of photo. Below is an example.
This was the first one I did.....and as I post the others, you will see progression. I liked the idea of starting with a piece of a puzzle, then letting the pen and brain wander. Actually, looking at this, I would like to go back in and fill in the white areas...I was not sure how far I wanted to take the drawing. It was an experiment only.
The sketchbook is 9" x 12" I think.....somewhere around that size, so it gives an idea of the line size.
Looking back at these, and the current paper scrap journal, I see that I am very drawn to repetitive shapes/lines, though they may differ over time. That I am a *motif* person. Hmmmmmm......
I believe it was Anna Rose who urged me to further research zentangles, and that was when this sketchbook came up. I may actually take it upstairs inthe evening, as it is easy to work on.
This was never *day work*---that is saved for commissions, etc. It was always *evening work*---unwind, doodle, see what happens.
I will post a few more of these because, as painfully ugly as this one is, the ones afterwards got better.
Sometimes you have to post a few Bow-Wows to appreciate the nicer work! LOL!!!
So yes, this is an "Anne-Tangle".........heeheehee!
