What a lovely way it’s been to spend a few hours today! Trying out variations of the Pokeleaf Zentangle fragment.
I didn’t think I’d run out of space on this page, but I did. And there’s a couple of new fragment shapes there as well!
I used iridescent gold pigment as a watercolour on some areas, sometimes with a little colour added with a chalk pastel. On other leaves, I used chalk pastels, sometimes with some embossed patterns too.
Again, the possibilities are endless – shape of fragment, shape of leaf, number of leaves, arrangement of leaves, background or filler patterns … and so much more! All that’s needed is a pen, some paper and some time and imagination.
Today’s video shows the drawing of many of these variations, but not quite all of them. Nor does it include much i the way of adding colour.
I hope that these variations will fire up your creativity and have you reaching for pen and paper to have a go yourselves.
