A fellow Arizonan, Suzy Mosh, has posted a challenge to try a new (to you, anyway) pattern and post the results. She picks a random letter and you must choose a pattern starting with it. This is her third weekly challenge (I missed the first two - sorry), so here goes on lucky #3!
After they ran that creepy TV show "V", the letter has never seemed the same, has it? I used to associate it with velvet, violets, verdant green, that kind of thing. Oh well, time for new thoughts on that letter!
I chose Vache 1 by Canadian CZT Geneviève Crabe. It seemed like a good choice for tangelations, and now I wonder why I never used it before. I'll add this to my pocket for future use now, as I like it.
The pattern itself is based on cow spots, but not being a country girl, I couldn't verify that. Somebody commented that it looks kind of like a map, which I can see. Mine looks a little industrial with some fishy things going on. Oh well... This was a very Zen, quiet drawing experience for me, so I count it a success!
