This week, I attended a Zentangle Watercolour Demonstration Workshop at Opus. The workshop costed $15 (not including supplies) and there were about five of us. We learned four tangles (only one tangle was new to me, but it was nice to practice the ones I already knew and see how others made them their own). Before we tangled, we did a water colour wash on one tile. We were instructed to first wet our tile a lot, then apply colour, and then dab the excess coloured water off the tile to create a tie dye effect. Having taken a water colour class before, I used a little bit of a different technique with my water brush and used a large piece of water colour paper instead of a tile. While we waited for our tiles to dry, we meditated. Next, we tangled. I was in the middle of working on a collection of water colour pieces that I was framing for in my bathroom so I decided to tangle on those instead of the piece I had just water coloured in the class. The tangles we learned were Printemps, B'Tweed, Florz, Emingle. Again, it was really fun tangling in a group setting. All the ladies at this demo were also at the last demo. At the end, we created a mosaic (see below). When I got home, I finished the last piece for my framed watercolour art for the bathroom (see below). I was very pleased how it turned out. My husband suggested I hashtag it #artwhereyoufart, he's a witty guy sometimes.
Very pleased with the finished product! #artwhereyoufart
