I added some more colour to my version of this week’s coloring template (or coloring page if you prefer) for the Angela Porter’s Coloring Book Fans facebook group.
I stuck to a fairly limited palette of blues and teals, oranges and terracotas for this one.
I wasn’t aware until I added colour of the circular objects trapped beneath the triangles! It never ceases to amaze me now colour can bring out unexpected structures in a mandala or zentangle style design.
“Ivily” by Debbie New CZT – Day 20 #FYIC2022
Part of me wants to call this fragment ‘evilly’ because I was really, really vexed and frustrated by the original fragment. I just couldn’t get my head around it.
Don’t get me wrong, the fragment is lovely, but I just couldn’t work out how to draw it. It took me ages and ages of looking and working with it to even to be able to see the ivy leaves!
That’s all to do with how my mind works, nothing to do with Debbie’s beautiful fragment.
Eventually, I decided to cut my losses and just see how I could put ivy leaf motifs a la Angela into fragment shapes. That was a bit more of a fruitful journey with some unexpected results for sure.
Once my head is clear of my vexations, I may very well return to this fragment to see what I can do then.
Here’s the link to today’s video, all frustrations and vexations, trials and tribulations included!
