Stormy - she's what I call a natural fairy...drew her by candle light and sun light. She looks a little wind blown, don't you think? Ink & graphite on Stonehenge paper, 5x7 inches

Saturday, August 27, 2011

Finished this one tonight...created her over the past couple of days, all this storm talk makes me want to hold on to summer as long as possible: "Summer's Fling" roughly 4x6 inched, ink and graphite on Stonehenge paper.

The Witches Hat

It's all about the hat....ACEO, ink, prismacolor and tinted graphite on Stonehenge paper

A new aceo to kick off the "season of the witch"

Fariy Ballerinas

A big tangle for me...8x10 inches. I've not done any shading on this yet, but plan to add some color....which is a little intimidating....it's going to take a bit of time to color this one :o)

Bluejay Tangle

Did this one on a official Zentangle tile, micron pens and shaded with graphite. I love the quality of the paper used in the tiles...it's so nice to work with.

New ACEO Fairy "Tangle" & her Dragon Friend

I'm having so much fun "tangling" these Fantasy Art Trading Cards...this new one is based on an older graphite drawing I did last year...same basic pose, but the tangling takes a path of it's own, so the piece actually looks very different from my original drawing.

Tangle Moon

It's been raining off and on today...made a trip to Newport with hubby for shopping and coffee and then finished this one. ACEO, ink, prismacolor and tinted graphite on Stonehenge paper

Blue Kitty

It's a rainy morning here in the North East....good for staying indoors and getting some tangling done...or at least some coloring of the tangles I've done over the past couple of weeks. "Blue Kitty" is done with ink and Prismacolor pencils on a 3.5 x 3.5 inch Zentangle Tile.

I really must do my own "Tangled" background for this blog...stay tuned

Fairy & Owl ZIA - Art Trading Card

Got a chance to finish 'coloring' this one yesterday afternoon....as you can see, she's based on the same pose as my last ACEO below. Sometimes when I do a drawing it inspires me to do a "tangled" version of the same pose. One thing always leads to another :o)
Currently, I've got several more Fairy-Tangles done waiting their turn for some color. The coloring always takes much longer than the tangling part....maybe because the tangling part is so very Zen and the coloring part involves more thinking :o)
Art Card size, Ink, Prismacolor pencil on Stonehenge paper. Hope you enjoy her.

Photo Shoot

Very Excited...did a photo shoot with a beautiful young woman who dressed up as a witch - came complete with spell book and candle. Can't wait to do some drawing from the shots!

New Fairy "Tangle" Art Card

Tangled this out the other night and got a chance to add the color this afternoon.
Fairy Dragon "Tangle"
2.5 x 3.5 Inches
Ink, Prismacolor pencil, tinted graphite on Stonehenge paper.

I just love Stonehenge paper...it take the ink very well and also allows for lots of layering with the color pencil. This paper had a little tint of purple/gray to it instead of the cream and white I usually use.

I originally did this pose as a ZIA and then found myself doing it in color pencil. The ZIA version can be seen under the Zentangle tab above.
