curvy + linear = curvilinear

On day 20 of One Zentangle A Day, Beckah Krahula has us working with sampson, n’zeppel, and jetties, which use curved lines, or curved lines placed on an X or on a grid of squares. I added a couple of additional curvilinear tangles because the tile seemed to be calling for them.

I used sampson, jetties, n’zeppel, verdigogh, and flux with a little tipple.

There are more inspiring ideas and interpretations of the chapter over at the virtual book club.

The second assignment in the chapter was to experiment working on colored paper, using colored pencils for highlights and shadows. A key ingredient: choose colored pencils that are the same hue as the paper, just a lighter or darker value thereof. This is something I’ve worked on here and there, and enjoy immensely. Here are two cards I made on colored paper:
