30 Paintings in 30 Days: Day 19: Zentangle with Philcops and Diva Dance

I did this for the I Am the Diva Challenge #185 which is to create a dual design using Philcops and Diva Dance tangles.  This is my rendition of Philcops and Diva Dance.  I started out determined to make this zentangle in asymmetrical balance with the three philcops in the center, and still ended up with a symmetrical design after I added the area outside the circle.  For some reason (maybe the fact that I am a Libra) - everything has to be balanced in my life.  When I am painting in oils or watercolor I have no trouble doing them in asymmetrical balance, but as soon as I zentangle - the symmetrical genes kick in - guess I will just go with it!

This tangle is 6" square and is done on good white drawing paper with Micron-Pigma pens and Prismacolor colored pencils.

Love that illustrative corn piece below and the Victorian charm of these leaves!

This is a truly gorgeous piece. It needs to be framed and hung on the wall.
