Zentangle from Sunday walk

I have blogged before about my little self-improvement project to learn how to zentangles by doing one a day for six weeks.  I am now in week five and the stakes have been raised.  This week we not only go into colour, but we also start creating the tangles properly as artworks.  The task was to work with colour and the book suggested that the drawings work well as botanic pieces, so yesterday when we were walking the dog I took some photos to use to develop a botanical drawing and to make up my own tangles.  The resulting zentangle is at the beginning of the post.  Here’s the beautiful park in glorious sunshine:

These are the photos I took:

You can see the leaf shapes in the drawing.  The watercolour effects were done with intense coloured pencils, mainly with the colour lifted with a wet brush from the point of the pencil.
