It’s a sphere, it’s a circle, a button, a ring, a hole. Pretty simple, and yet it can make so many fun patterns. In Zentangle, a bunch of circles clustered together is called tipple, and with or without shading, they make an interesting surface.
This week the diva Laura Harms challenged everyone to use tipple. I stuck with circular forms, and added a couple more circular Zentangle patterns to the mix.
I agree with Laura that getting lost in the mindfulness of drawing is easy with circles. They spill out across the tile and don’t require a lot of mental prompting about what to put where.
Tangles used: tipple, onamato, and Margaret Bremner’s lotus pods. The ones that look like targets are a bit like Suzanne McNeill’s bubble, just not as uniform.
