Tangles: Zenplosion and Ribbon (Daniele O'Brien) Stacks (Helen Williams)

A completely different look to the first one. I wanted to use a tangle that could be drawn fairly quickly and take up lots of space, so 'Stacks' fitted the bill. Then what to do? I wanted to give it a rustic feel, so I added rivets to the Stacks. Then I wanted to fill the spaces around Stacks - so came Zenplosion, and for interest I added Ribbons, which have the same flow as Zenplosion so fitted in quite well. Then, I wanted to use either a pattern that looked like old bricks or cobblestones - cobblestones won that draw. I used muted water colour pencils, filling in the middle with a lime colour to bring out the main tangles.

I hope you like it as much as I enjoyed the process.
