Art *Almost* Every Day

So, this is the first week of the "Art Every Day" experiment. A few years ago I accepted a similar challenge to do a little art every day for a month and it was a great experience. I have gotten woefully sloppy and out of practice by only drawing a little here and there when I have a moment or in class. I wanted to see if I could manage to get back to the 'roots' of the Zentagle practice and do a little piece every day, small, quick, not too much thought...  of course the weekly challenge to leave a blank space was included in a few!

The one above has a pattern I have kind of done before, but not seen anywhere else in the bottom right corner. The one below originally had a blank spot where the netting is and it just looked wrong so it got filled in, however, it does have the sparsely populated Printemps area that gives a sense of light emptiness. 

So far I have managed doing one everyday. One day I only managed half, but the next day I finished and did another a well. I have a ways to go in really doing it 'quickly' and without too much thought. I have been trying to pick tangles that I haven't done in a while and don't pick often so I am looking through my book frequently so I don't fall back on the 'old familiar' ones. Here are the rest so far this week...

Have a great week!


  1. These are all beuatiful! I think you are doing well, tangle every day. I do that (almost) all the time for almost three years now.

  2. They are all indeed great!! I am not sure what the pattern in the bottom right is, but I like the pattern in the bottom left of the second tile, thats interesting, almost like a grid of bows.

  3. I applaud your efforts at doing it every day. I may work on something everyday, but do not get something completed. Like what you did with Bloomin Butter in the last one. I may have to try that one again.

  4. I like them all. I try to do something everyday, but some days all it is is demos for my students.
