Diva's Weekly Challenge #238



I don’t know as a beginner if it’s too early to join the Diva’s Weekly Challenge, but I so want join it. For me it's really amazing that a challenge has kept going for four years. I believe I could learn a lot from this challenge.

The challenge #238 is "Tei-Bee", which is found by Beate Winkler from Germany.

This work made me understand the meaning of “unexpected results”. My plan was to make a Tri-Bee frame, and I was really satisfied with this bingeing. However, an idea flashed through my head and I decided making another flower with this pattern and joining them with “Beadline”.

But the result is totally not like I imagined it at all. I had to do something to make a focus for my painting. So I drew some color—this was a real tragedy. It taught me that purple is a dangerous color. NEVER USE PURPLE unless you totally know what you are doing.

Finally, I drew each brim of the leafs with the white pen. It surprised me, because it seems better.

So, this is my first challenge. If anyone visits here, I warmly hope you will enjoy it and I welcome any feedback and suggestions.

2015.10.10. Update. I love Tei-Bee so much and draw another one with black and white. :p

發現了一個從2011年至今,已經持續238週的禪繞挑戰:the Dica's Weekly Challenge。好多禪繞愛好者參與這個活動三、四年,實在太有毅力了。這個挑戰目前的運作方式是每個月的第一天由主辦人Dvia出題,其他週則是別的參與者投稿,每週一公布圖樣或指定創作方式,有一個星期的時間來創作。

於是,這個星期我默默地加入挑戰,本週主題是由來自住在漢堡的CZT Beate Winkler發現的『Tri-Bee』,所以我還默默地複習一下德文。

很喜歡這圖樣,本來只要畫一朵花,結果延伸成一個L型的邊框,至此,我超級滿意,不過接下來就像不小心推倒骨牌一樣,一路失控。

如果就這樣繞成一個邊框應該挺不錯的,但不知道哪根筋不對,決定再用這個圖樣畫一朵花,然後連上豆豆線。

可是畫的時候又沒照著計劃,自以為是的想用直線+斷點營造一種光環的氣氛,卻失敗了,只好隨機補上幾條豆豆線,差強人意。

接下來又嫌花太單薄,而在花瓣前端塗黑,結果變成一種充滿乳頭狀的集合,一不做二不休,乾脆上色。

我只能說,紫色真的是兇險的顏色,塗了第一片花瓣我就知道慘了,粉色系救不了它,暖色系也束手無策,還後最後用水漾筆描邊之後,看起來沒這麼古怪。

禪繞真的不太可能照著自己的預期,每一筆錯誤的線條都可能帶來新的際遇,可不是? 


2015.10.08,如果是挑戰會把中英文順序對調。

  2. Welcome to this community!! And no, it's certainly not too early to jump in, it NEVER is. Your tile is very beautiful and I'm glad you already found the real zentangle thing. It never goes as you did think it would. The outcome is (almost) always a big (and pleasant) surprise.

  4. I'm amazed that you weren't really happy with this - I think it's lovely and the colour helps focus the eye on the flower. Keep tangling, you're going to love it.
