I am the Diva Challenge 183: X-Did

This is my answer to the X-Did challenge for The Diva's Challenge, #183.  It is 6" x 6" and is done on good white drawing paper. I used Micron-Pigma pens and I shaded with pastels and Prismacolor colored pencils.

This is an awesome Tile, Barbara. Love how you used X-Did as a single element and again as a strip repeating element. Perfect execution of the patterns. Your color shading is amazing. Beautiful work, I love it.

Barb Sailor said...

Thank you so much, David! I found this tangle to be sort of daunting and difficult to use in a tangle - thus the single element first and the rest came along later. I appreciate your comments - they are always so encouraging!

Agree wholeheartedly with David's comments. Like the colors. Saw your elephants on the post before. They are fantastic. I would never attempt something like that.

Crazy different. I like how you used the tangle as the string and then just worked in elements. Love the use of color. I might have to get some of those pens! (You're not helping my budget)

I'm impressed on how beautiful you composed your x-did, and layered it in the drawing. Very creative, and masterfully done. Colors - beautiful
