Continuing to work on the two copies of my mini-album commemorating our visit to the fabulous Mamhead Woods a few weeks ago.
On my last WOYWW post, I shared the first Zentangle tracing I did of one of my manipulated photos. I’ve had another two or three sessions working on further tracings.
Some of them didn’t lend themselves well to Zentangle, so I’ve just done straight tracings, and I may add some gold, or some colour, to these – not sure yet.
These first two tracings were done using a sepia pen to echo the photo underneath.
This was done with the usual black pen.
Today I started working on tracings of the manipulated tree trunks photo – this was desaturated and then made into a negative image and posterised and I really like the effect. I thought the tree trunks would work well with ribbon-style Zentangles and I’m quite pleased with the result.
I may add a little more. Here’s the tracing a bit closer up.
Here it is in situ over the photograph.
I ran out of steam before starting on the pair of this one, and had to come down and have a cup of tea and rest! More another day.
