New tangle "Camelia"

Since I saw the first camelia blooming on our bush yesterday, I decided to call this tangle after it.


Whilst this design  may seem a bit complex, it is a nice flowing one to get lost in. It lends itself to variations, eg. leave out the grid and you have a nice line of movement.



As you can see, I'm still going with my colour wash back grounds..so many of them to put tangles on!!

I actually completed the watecolour fish too..



One thing in particular I like about watercolour pencils is the gradient effect that's easy to obtain as you wet the colour , then brush it along to weaken in strength as you go.

If there's "anyone out there" who is IT savvy, I still can't get my nomination icon to work. I have googled how to's and followed their instructions, to no avail. You can email me with some instructions if you can help. I also can't add tangle patterns icon either, so I must be not doing something!!

  7. Love this design. I did it without graph paper, just drew in the grid that's actually part of the pattern. It flows very easily. Thanks.
