One of the things that drew me to Zentangle originally was my love of black and white and the contrast between them. The bold, striking look of the two together. I love black and white in my clothing, and I've decorated my home in black and white. And when it comes to tangling, my favorite pieces are always the ones where there are areas of filled in black, not just black lines.
Here are a few of my recent tiles with some drama, which is how I like to describe the ones with lots of bold black.
Patterns used: Flux, Pais, and C-Wing
On the next tile I was planning to add drama by filling the whole background with black but decided it was more interesting leaving it alone at this point.
Patterns used: Leeter and Morf (filled with lines)
I'm sure that some of you have enough drama in your lives already, but if you'd like to add some to your Zentangle art work, think black and have some fun!
