Christmas Tree Zentangle

This is my latest Zentangle project. I created a tree and made cards for my volunteer helpers in my art class. I drew with .5 micro pens on watercolor paper and then scanned and duplicated on my computer. Finally I priinted onto 80 lb watercolor paper.

Dead Sea Fish Collage

I created this collage from a photo I took on my trip to Israel. This was on of our meals near the Dead sea. The fish was Tilapia.
I used various textures of different papers: wallpaper, magazine colors, starbuck bag to simulate the color. I tried to add darker shades to give value. This took forever but was fun to do. I painted my canvas with the color I intended to collage as a guide.
