We spent much of this day working on large illuminated letters in a Zentangle way.
We used large sheets of our Zentangle tile paper. Each person chose a letter which they painted in gold and then added their tangles. We had books of 14th and 15th century manuscripts on hand . . .
. . . which are also a rich resource for Zentangle tangles. Check out bales on the left in this next image which is an enlargement from that "M" in the above picture.
We chose to do illuminated letters in part because when Maria was working on an illuminated manuscript, I (Rick) interupted her and in that moment the idea for Zentangle was born.
Here's a sneak peek from our last day to give you a hint of where we went with these letters. (More later!)
People traveled from near and far to get to Master Class, whether driving their motorhome from Louisiana, driving their car from the next state, or flying in from all over North America. The person who came the farthest though was Fina Man from Hong Kong who brought gifts for everyone.
