This spring was a terrifically busy semester for me with a new class with a few new things to teach (Internship), a packed Research class with LOTS of grading of long papers and a great Physics class that was really pretty easy - although I should probably have been more diligent about a few non-AP curriculum things that would have made for much more grading. I will see how it all turned out when the AP grades come out in July I suppose.
Anyway, I have not really had consistent time to draw, and really no time for responding to challenges. I HAVE done some drawing here and there, but not for challenges and never with time to sit down and post. Well, school is over. I have had a week and a half to catch up on sleep and house cleaning and even get a household project done! Then The Diva Challenge about the Beads of Courage Color Run really jumped out at me today. So here goes.

|Lots of tangles: Puff, Gnili, Swanz, Mooka, Inapod, Beadz and a little Fescue|
Then over the weekend she and I sat down to make more washes and I made a large one I liked. The colors in the Color Run photos reminded me of these color splashes. I don't have a photo of the original, but I think the result is pretty interesting, sort sea-scape-ish, but not on purpose.
|Lots of patterns in this one too: a little Mooka, Punzel, Socc, PopCloud, Flux, Zenplosion Folds, K'leesi, Fracas, Indyrella, Finery, and two tear drop shaped areas of Zen Weaving (shown in the detail below).|

Now I need to be brave again... She made another red, orange and yellow wash that looks great and asked me to draw on it! Ack! I will let you know how it goes (and maybe do some catch-up posts of things I have done since, well, last December)!
Welcome back to the Diva Challenge community. I need to learn how to do washes. They really are a lovely compliment to your tangles.ReplyDelete
