The S and C curve in Zentangle Gallery: Artist Sharla R. Hicks, CZT

My SharlaRella and Indyrella Series began in early 2011 and continues on today. Take note that with each exploration in the gallery my tangling techniques, design and shading skills grew. The daily practice of Zentangle and exploring the same Tangle in a Series produced a creative explosion of new and exciting variations. This week I was the guest blogger on the I Am The Diva Blog and I choose to featured some of my favorite tangles in I Am The Diva Weekly Challenge #231,  “The Undulating Tangles in C and S minor”:  Indyrella, it’s variation SharlaRella, and Isochor. I have illustrated the steps . . .
