Diva Dance/Crescent Moon Feather

This week's challenge - Diva Dance/Crescent Moon. Fun. Love, love playing with Diva Dance - such a beautiful, flowing tangle.

I love experimenting with patterns as feather designs, and since I haven't drawn one for a while, this was my big chance.


Looking forward to checking out what others have come up with!

    1. Amen to that. Helen's work is definitely unique; she's one of a kind. As Beewatch said, I wish I could draw like Helen. Or more to the point, I wish I was as creative as she is.

  9. Your work always leaves me with my mouth open trying to figure out how you can turn everything into such beautiful, curvy, delicate work. When I grow up, I want to be just like you!

  13. Beautiful. You really demonstrate how far one can go with these tangles - how you can produce something so entirely different. I looked and for a moment or two couldn't see the two chosen tangles and then I started to notice them, and then I went 'wow'!

  15. I beautiful design, flowing and curling. I love it.
    Helen, do you draw your zentangles using the four corner dots, laying out your string and filling it out with the chosen tangles? Because I can see clearly with other artists through delineation of their strings but with yours, it is hard to see. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hi Ginimae. Thank you!

      I don't use the zentangle method of tile/corner dots/pencil string. I take inspiration from the many tangle patterns and find ways of including them in my drawings - mostly in A4 art journals - I love seeing what I can make them do - I'm never quite know where they're going to take me :)

  17. Stunning. One of the things I look forward to in your work is how you swirl and shade things to make things look so alive. Like how you made the rounding part of the Diva Dance. It pulls everything together. Amazes me how you can envision such things and then put them on paper.

  19. Thanks so much for replying, Helen. Now it makes sense to me how yours pretty much stand out so uniquely even when using the same or similar tangle patterns as other artists. I love your beautiful style, so delicate and flowing. Thanks for sharing it with us and being an inspiration.
