Here we are again, it’s Monday! Funny how that happens every week. Last week we had a case of the uglies and this week we’re gonna stare down at the ground.
Take a walk around the block with your head down and your camera ready. Shoot the imperfections in the pavement, weeds pushing up through the cracks, even litter in the gutter. Look for interesting lines and textures anywhere and everywhere.
Since I’ve been crazy busy getting ready for the Craft & Hobby Association Mega Show over the past week, I didn’t have time to take a special photo journey. So I went through old photos that I’d taken last spring during a few plein air painting days with my local art association. My friend Cathy was setting up her easel and set her trusty old can of paint brushes on the ground where I was looking for interesting grass or weeds to shoot. I love this photo – there’s just something about the light and textures. So I thought it might be fun to render it with some Zentangle patterns.
Zentangling is so fun and relaxing. I used a UniBall Vision fine point pen which works so nicely for thin lines, thick lines and filling in solid areas, the ink flows just right. Have you tried Zentangle? We’d love to see it! Be sure to use our hashtag #20waystoinspire when you share your projects on social media so we can find you!
