Tiny details. This tile is a result of Eni Oken’s Tiny Details Lesson. This excellent video shows you exactly how to create and shade areas of a tile which include little, tiny detail drawings which can be a major challenge to shade! I love tiny drawing and repetitive patterns that are very close to each other. There is just something really soothing and satisfying about filling predefined areas with tangles like these, making this tile lots of fun to create.

Under the tree. I couldn‘t resist creating a tile that looked like Christmas presents under the tree! Zentangle drawn on Strathmore Vellum Bristol using a black, Micron pen. Tangles: Black Box Checkers Purrlyz Repeat Pattern Stacks Sabi Verdigogh

What do you see? I love this tile. I‘ve had a blast asking people what they see when they look at it. I‘ve gotten a lot of different answers. What makes this tile work so well is all the contrasting areas that are well balanced across the tile. The patterns are all fairly bold, and have areas of dark and light.
