Diva's Spiral Challenge #160

I had a message last week that the Google Friends Connect Follow Button isn't working.  So I have added the Google + Follower Button to see if that will work.   I think the Friends Connect is being phased out by Google.  I tried to follow another blog using it and that did not work either.

Anyway - to the spiral.  I do love them and there may be another one before the week is out!



I have drawn this on kraft paper with sangiune Faber Pitt pen, white & baked earth Inktense pencils and some Sakura pens.  The sparkly ones have not shown up too well and everything has scanned much darker.

This one I started ages ago using sections of some drawings superimposed on each other which is the basis of the string.   Not exactly a spiral!  But I was rather pleased with it.



Another play on ribbons and aquafleur on A4.



Thanks again for the lovely comments.  I have enjoyed looking at the posts for last week's challenge and will catch up now with this week's.

  1. Your spiral has such a cool tribal look to me. Not sure why exactly I see that, but it is lovely!

    1. Thanks Kate. That is an interesting comment. I scanned and posted this once I had finished it rather than leaving it till the next day. I find that when I come back to them they seem quite different to the night before as if the patterns have gelled and made something new of themselves. So when I looked again I could see the tribal element as well.

  2. All three are beautiful, but the second one really intrigues me.

    1. Hi Annemarie & LonettA. The second one started out a couple of years ago on a workshop on abstraction and I think I was drawing the negative spaces of the room. I then cropped in to the most interesting section and then traced them out by overlapping them. The original intention was to paint them Mondrian style in black, red, yellow and blue. The drawing has been waiting for all that time for the final inspiration and hey Zentangle has come along
