How I did my tangle for Day 2

I’m doing the Challenge in a small watercolour sketchbook I purchased from my local “Dollars and Sense” shop for $2.00. It’s 5 x 7 inches so I’m doing two daily tangles to a page. It’s not top quality paper but perfect for quick spontaneous artworks.

I painted a round puddle of watercolours using yellow and orange and the green and blues from my other puddle bled into it for a happy accident!

When the puddle of watercolour was dry, I began tangling using the tangle pattern chosen for us for Day 2 which is “TunnelVizion”. You can see the steps for how to draw this tangle at Tanglepatterns.com.

I really wanted to keep the bright yellow middle section plain without any tangles to add a focal point and it worked well. To add more depth to the design I added shading to the cone shapes to make them look slightly 3D.
