181- I am the Diva Challenge

.
The theme this week at I am the Diva for challenge #181 is Water.  This seemed like an ideal time to get out my Inktense pencils and create a nice watery background.  I also love to draw little gardens and scenes, so, while not particularly challenging, this is what I did.  I'm still working on something a little more unusual.

I used the tangles nipa, fern, angel fish, zinger, tearce, shiraz and flux.  We're expecting rain here in Southern Ontario tomorrow so have a wet and wonderful week.


 
 
 
I decided to edit in a second, somewhat more sinister tile.  Here I used fishface. squiggle, squid, suckers, msst, flux and viaduct.  I used my lovely new Staedtler triplus fineliner pens - the set of 20 yummy .03 colours, and some prismacolor pencils.  Watch out!

  4. Strangely enough, I hadn't thought of msst as a watery tangle - duh! Love it here, and you do fishface much more neatly than I do. The colours in the first tile really grab me.

  8. they are both wonderful, but I get a lot of delight from art with something unusual or "dangerous" in it so your emerging tentacles gave me a giggle. Fun stuff!

  17. Hi Kia,
    I love your water versions. I did do one last week but did not post. Thank you for your comment on this week, "Stripes". I too love cats but for the first time in years don't have one because too many family members with allergies. I also have arthritis, and have had two shoulder replacements this year. It was also interesting to see your other work. Have a good week.
