I started work on this project a little over a week ago while I was at Kali’s.
This was the first picture I posted. Those trees are a design by Marie Browning, they are called fractal trees. She talks about them in her book Time to Tangle With Colors.
A couple days ago I posted this picture. I took my layout and filled in the layers with various tangles.
Next I started laying in some color with my Tombow markers. They are a fairly new product for me. Mark gave me a complete set for Christmas, but I am just now getting around to learning how to use them.
A little more color. Leaning towards a sunset of colors behind
those fractal trees.
There you go, there’s a closer view.
This will give you a little better idea of what I was working with. This is on Canson, 98 lb, mixed media paper. And, yes, I used every single one of those tombow markers you see laying on the desktop.
Getting close to being finished. Just a little more detail work.
Can you see what I added? Marie calls it haloing. I added a halo around the trees, and around several of the sections down below. At this point I believe this to be complete. Easy enough to do, why don’t you give it a try and send me a picture? I’ll post it here on my blog :). And if you get a chance, try out Marie Browning’s book Time to Tangle With Colors. I carry it in my Etsy store, or you can pick it up online.
