Fifteen of us got the luck of the Irish, with Celtic music and early St. Patrick's Day Zentangle workshop at Oasis - Grossmont Center, La Mesa, Calif. I taught lots of tangles along with lots of fun. Some past tanglers, and always some newbie's.
Tangles used today were: Mooka, Bales, Crescent Moon, Hollibaugh, Pokeroot, Tipple, Knase and Bales.
We extended the class l/2 hour so we had time to color our art piece. Folks said they were scared to put color on their tile. Remember with the Zentangle patterns, color goes along way - you don't need much. We did a little shading and hopefully they will put a little color on at home. Zentangle and color - my thoughts are less is best. I usually suggest lighter colors as not to overbear the tangles.
As I tell my students, my suggestions are just that - suggestions. Zentangle was designed for many ways to create same tile -tangleation's (variations), tango's (adding two patterns together). There is no limit to the art. So many tangles, so little time. Enjoy the process and don't worry about the end result.
Thumbs up for Zentangle !!!
