We've made it through another chapter and now are learning about organic patterns. This is so not my forte so I am not looking forward to this chapter. In fact, I think my tangles are getting worse. I hope it is just an "awkward phase."
Here is my assignment: at tile using verdigogh, locar, and yin cut. I added hollibaugh in the background, knightsbridge below the hollibaugh, and a purk nestled in the locar. The purk is the only part of this tile I like. It reminds me of the little tree on A Charlie Brown Christmas.
Sharon Matys contributed this:
"Love verdigogh... one of my favorites... but not so much with 'locar'... I didn't pencil in the stem as was suggested, that might have helped. YIncut is nice & easy... a good filler & contrast for the others. I would like to try these all again. I added some pokeroot & filled up a bit with my go-to tipple."

Here is Day #15...first of all, thanks for doing that shading research, it really helped me to have a better understanding on all the value types, and I agree that we should shade with arbitrary and/or expressive value, and I love your tile!
I'm finding that all the particulars, though helpful in the long run, are really getting in the way of my "intuitive" zentangle process. I find myself "planning" my tile, and yet, one of the things that attracted me to Zentangle in the first place was absence of all the rules and regulations, so to speak! Having said all that, I am learning so much, and having a great time learning from everyone else too...thanks to all of you!
As for today's tile, I really like Locar and Verdigogh...but I had such a hard time shading it, and I probably should have let my Verdigogh stretch and spread out over the Yincut...but that's why we're doing this...to learn!!
From Angela Werner:
Lesson 15 - Organic Linear Patterns - Plus use Yincut, Locar, Verdigogh. Wow, what a surprise! I've been ignoring Locar thinking it's not fun or cute. Well, I love it and especially with verdigogh! Nice combination. Also, my Yincut is quite different here but I will revisit that one. Great possibilities with that one. This was a great tile to do. I love the organic tangles so much. It's a quiet tile, without any drama, but still, it pleases me. Sweet :)
