I’m working my way through the Beginners Guide from pattern-collections.com. They started with tipple, and you can see my first try here. I used a background I made some time ago. It was made with chalk pastels, and I loved the colors. Besides the classical micron pen and pencil I used white gel pen for drawing. This was also the Beginners Challenge at the Monotangle Adventures on facebook. So here is it:
Although I’m not really a beginner I learned a lot from each of the tiles. So much fun, so I decided to use string no. 1 from Pattern-collections to fill with tipple. Again I used a background I had in my stash, but this time it was painted with watercolor. I used pen and pencil, plus a bit of colored pencil.
Then there was the challenge #26 at the Monotangle group, and they chose the pattern Aim plus string 111 from tanglepatterns.com.. This time I only used a bit of glaze pen to add some color. So this is my third monotangle.
I find that Monotangles are great for practicing deliberate strokes, for thinking about the tangles, and varying them. Besides this is just plain relaxing
