I’m following the Inktober prompts that my Facebook Zentangle group, Tangle All Around, is using, but I didn’t care for today’s, so I’m using yesterday’s. Perlz was designed by Maria V. Copetas:
To me, each two-pearl unit looks like a smiling mother and child.
I found this pattern surprisingly challenging, and I’m not satisfied with how it turned out. My lower pearls are tear-shaped instead of round, and I could not figure out how to improve that. I guess you just have to put in the practice–draw 10,000 of them, and they begin to look good.
I really appreciate these challenges. They motivate me to try something new.
