Here's my latest Zendala creation from scratch. I really love creating my own Zendala shapes to fill in with fun tangles. I was excited to work with red and black on this one and was surprised by how much I didn't want to fill in the areas with dark sections. I liked the linework enough and wanted it to stand on its own. I love how Paradox came out in the center and how it pops with shading. I was tempted to fill the dagger areas on the outer edge with solid black before going with some more red.
I love being able to experiment with new things. I love letting my art take me in directions I didn't anticipate. When I started this Zendala, I didn't know where I'd end up other than having some red. I would have expected to fill in my Bunzo or the negative space in Hollibaugh, but I surprised myself.
Let things evolve in life. We can't have it all planned out. Zentangle® art, like life, doesn't have a predetermined outcome. The best way to make it further along in our journey is to try things.
Tangles used: Paradox, Bunzo, Hollibaugh, and Jetties.
