A Fine Line

Maria writes:
Anyone who plays a musical instrument knows you can get a variety of sounds from just one note. Learning subtle potentials of an instrument makes playing and listening more interesting.

And so . . . the pen. You can scream out a line, dance a rhythm or tickle the edge of the paper! This Zentangle is done with one 01 Sakura® Pigma™ pen. Notice the subtle nuances this pen can create - from bold lines to lacey auras. This adds interest and fun for both artist and viewer.

Stunning! Not only is this zentangle a great example of the versatility of the Micron 01 but it shows the amazing effects that can be achieved by shading. The spiral really is gorgeous.

I love your description of being with the pen in different ways. It's easy to get in a sort of rut, even with how we use a pen. This is a great reminder of all the possibilities...
