Sorry it’s been so long since my last post, I’ve been feeling a bit under the weather lately… I’m starting to feel like myself again.
I worked on this zentangle tile and felt that the black and white was too stark, I thought it needed a bit of color. I recently purchased some new water-soluble markers (Marvy Le Plume) and tested them out to see how they would respond to various types of paper. Then I colored my zentangle tile.
FYI, they work best on watercolor paper (naturally), but if you scribble the marker on plastic then add water, you can use it like watercolor paint on other types of paper2, which is what I did for my zentangle tile.
A few days passed and I was thinking about how I wanted to photograph the tile… Regular Random1 came to mind… enjoy! 😀
Until next time…
1 Regular Random is a fun photography inspirational exercise by desleyjane at musings of a frequent flying scientist :
- choose a subject or a scene
- spend five minutes photographing it – no more!
- try to not interfere with the subject, instead see it from many angles, look through something at it, change the light that’s hitting it
- have fun!
2 Other types of paper tested:
- Studio Series Artist’s Tiles (this is the one I used)
- Official Zentangle Tile (blue and purple flower test, good choice)
- Strathmore Watercolor Visual Journal (excellent choice – but not great for my Sakura Pigma Micron Pen, it’s too textured for this pen)
- Strathmore Vellum Visual Journal (pretty good choice)
- Deleter Comic Book Paper (not a good choice for water media)
