Falling tangles

It was an honor to spend a recent day with the New England CZTs (NUTZ) for some new tangling techniques.  Suzanne Binnie taught us how to create an elegant watercolor wash background for a beautiful tangled leaf.  Here is my final result:

I can't believe how much I love this project.  I'm not one for using much color in my tangled artwork, so this is a perfect compromise for me.  It was fun to fill the leaf areas between the veins and to see how the symmetry became unsymmetrical due to the variations in the leaf.  I think my favorite part is the top--Purk, Printemps, and Betweed.

I can't wait to try this technique again.
