Krazy Koi

This painting will be the lesson for this coming Monday evening's class.  It incorporates wet -in-wet watercolor with Zentangle designs in Micron-Pigma black pens - Zentangle Inspired Art!!!  This painting is 11" x 18", but the students may work in any size they prefer.  They will be able to use some fish shapes I will provide, or design their own, and they may divide the area up into any type of areas they like - even using a Zentangle type string if they prefer.

This painting is done on 140 lb. Arches cold-pressed watercolor paper with transparent watercolor and Micron-Pigma waterproof black pens.  The next one I do will be much looser wet-in-wet watercolor - with no attempt to keep the colors within shapes.

Ooh, I do love the zentangle on the top of the tail fin especially. This is just wonderful, Barb! I was thinking what beautiful tiles this would make too!

How fascinating, Barb. I love it. May I ask what you mean by "zentangle type string"?
