creating harmony and variety

The assignment for day twelve in One Zentangle A Day is to use the chillon and bales tangles together. They are alike in that both begin with a grid of squares, and both incorporate drawing arcs along the edges. Their similarity is one way to create harmony.

Variety comes in by altering them in some way. I added an aura inside the bales squares and filled it with black. Chillon seemed lacking, so I added orbs with black pearlz in each.

I also used festune and printemps to bring circular forms to the tile… more variety. Vega and knightsbridge bring a bit of both variety and harmony to the tile.

The end result? Not one of my favorites. But the exploration gave me plenty of ideas for future explorations in composition.
