Diva Challenge #285 Straight lines

Oh boy was this difficult. I don't do very many organic tangles but I am drawn to orbs and curvy lines. This exercise was frustrating.

Since I have never "got" Shattuck so I tried that, very slowly, on my first tile. I would have loved to add some orbs or just something else so I decided on some drama. Could not even go further.









Next tile I tried three curvy tangles and made them straight. Crescent Moon, Nipa, and Orlique. Well you can see for yourself.





I am now going to draw some orbs and squiggly lines!

  1. I felt the same way... I like my curves. Nice work on straightening some of the curvy tangles though, and I like the contrast you added on Shattuck.

  6. Debra, I think these are really cool! I love your version of Shattuck, especially with the way you've accented the centre and the shading. You're brave to try the curvy tangles using straight lines… I thought about it, but decided I wasn't up for that challenge!
