Today I offer a double entry, one for SuzyMosh and one for Daniel at The Tangle Corner.
Daniel gave us the assignment in his Tangleation Vocation, to play with and tangle-ate Shattuck. I had fun with this one, and did a little variety plate on a page in my sketchbook.
The original pattern is on the left, then I put my own crax in there, as the separating lines. The middle has some larger sized elements, and I threw some wavy stuff in there. I think that is the version I want to play with more.
There is a quite large one across the right...a la' Lori Byerly, whose style is admirable and one I want to emulate. Finished up on the bottom right with more crax, this time crossing them, and filling with shattuck. Fun challenge, Daniel!
SuzyMosh challenges us with A patterns, and because we've had A before, we have a guest CZT that is Karry Huen. Karry has some of my very favorite patterns, such as summer sitter, which I have played with a lot; sand swirl that shows up in lots of artworks; landgirlz which I enjoyed so much in a L challenge and her newest delight is Frost Flower. FUN!
The A pattern I decided on was Aztec by Neil Burley which you see in the left middle and lower right. It's kind of a square, stacky thing. Very cool looking. For the patterns by Karry, I put sand swirl in to balance the square Aztec, and then decided to throw summer sitter in, which I did all wrong but didn't realize until I'd got them almost all done. Summer sitter is really an elegant pattern, a little bit like Mi2 but based on lozenges in an X where Mi2 has more an inverted V shape. I guess.
This tile was pre-colored by me with Derwent water color pencils and water. This did clog up my micron forest green .05 pen a little bit, and if you could turn over the tile, you'd see where I had to scribble a bit to get the ink flowing again.
Oh, I am disappointed in that Summer Sitter. The colors of the tile are nice, and that sand swirl is yummy.
