Diva #309 - Noom
I did my first tile this morning before looking at anyone else's work, which is unusual for me. I usually have a browse before drawing. My tile is Noom with a touch of Poke Leaf. These Pokes are inspired by some work I saw on the Zentangle App and are much softer and longer stemmed than I usually draw them.
I worked on a second tile after checking out the work of some other Tanglers. Does anyone recognise their work in this tile of mine? I've added Fracas, which always works nicely on a brown tile.
After seeing this image on screen, I've added more shading and highlights. I wanted the Fracas to appear to be deeper in the tile.

This week the feature Tangle was Mi2. I remember seeing this one in my first Zentangle book a couple of years ago and not being able to understand it. My reaction on seeing it in this week's challenge was to think that I couldn't do it. However, much has changed in the 3 years that I've been Tangling. That shouldn't be a surprise but it was. Here's my Monotangle.
I'm continuing to experiment with abstract shapes and colour. This week my shapes were inspired by the cut outs of Henri Matisse. Tangles used include my MacNCheese Tangles of Mooka and Tripoli, as well as Aquafleur, B'tweed and my first attempts at Noom.
Canberra likes to call itself the Bush Capital. It is a name that suits. This morning on my way home from the gym (a 2 minute drive) I had to give way to 4 kangaroos who were just mooching across the road near the top of my street. People around here a used to having to do this.
My school is now the home of 3 possums - 2 adults and a joey. My school has over 1,700 students and well over 100 staff. It's a busy place, yet this family have decided they like it. Here's photo I took recently. The tree is near one of the busier school gates. The animals were low enough for me to reach up and touch them. I didn't but I was sooooo tempted.
Finally, here's Arthur not getting enough cuddles while I'm trying to complete today's tiles.
Thanks for dropping by.
