30 Paintings in 30 Days: Day 29: Zentangle Inspired Art Two



I created this zentangle inspired art with my watercolor class tonight at Riverside Art Center.  I did one of these with a leaf motif last week and decided that it would make a good lesson, so that is what we did this evening - I painted this as they worked along. Firt they drew the leaves in pencil and then did a wet-in-wet watercolor over the drawing in colors of fall.  Then they zentangled tangles over the leaves with the micron-pigma pens.   

They really enjoyed the project and we will photograph it next week after all are completed.  This painting is 12" x 9" and is on 140 lb. Canson cold-pressed watercolor paper.

I love the directions in which you take your zentangles. And those peppers below! How crunchily refreshing they look!

Hey Sherry - Thanks a bunch for comments on both works! The peppers actually made me hungry for stuffed peppers!
