Earlier today, I just wanted to explore a simple Zentangle Pattern fragment, or two. I started with two square fragments, each with a circle in the centre. One had a diagonal cross, the other vertical/horizontal. And I went from there to create some more ornate versions of them.
I never know where this kind of exercise is going to go, but it is always interesting and some pleasant kinds of fragments result.
These are just a few fragments I came up with during the course of the video; I’ve barely scratched the surface of all the possible variations.
This exercise is good for flexing your creative ‘muscles’, warming up hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills, and playing around with colour, shade and highlight. Also, it’s perfect for relaxing, taking a break from all that is happening in this world. Even if for just a short while.
