Zentangle® Rainking, Keeko, and an Inchie

Sorry I missed commenting on everyone's post last week. I was gone for four days. If you are interested in my other life, you can read about it.

The tangle for the week over at I am the Diva, is Keeko, a basic filler. I added it around Rainking, featured below, and used Spectrum Noir watercolor pencils on a tan tile.
The focus tangle for Square One, Facebook is Rainking. Fun tangle!
And, I stayed so simple for the prompt word for Every Inchie Monday of Wormhole. When I was a child, we often ate apples straight from the tree without any pesticides. Horror of horrors and much spitting when this happened!

Thanks for stopping by. I love reading your comments!

  2. Love the Keeko/Rainking combination, great job! I like the Rainking monotangle, also, and adore the apple and work, lol.

  6. Wonderful Keeko/Rainking tile. I'd forgotten about Rainking. I'll have to bring that one up and see what I can do. I like your variations on the Rainking monotangle. Good to see what you do with it. And of course your red apple is wonderful. I love that worm. I used to live at a place with an organic apple orchard. I learned really fast how to find the worm holes in it before I chomped down on that part. LOL

    1. HaHa, Melena. I so remember scrutinizing every inch of an apple before I would eat it. Life is easier with some poison added :)

  8. Rainking is a new tangle for me but it looks very nice on paper, especially on your second tile you have drawn it in a beautiful way.
    Your weekly Inchie is really funny and as always very original!

    1. Thanks, Ria. I would imagine that most of us have done Rainking for years but not stepped out this way as a fragment.

    1. Well, you know I had to think of something besides the obvious, Sally. Whenever I can, that is. This wasn't the only one done this way though!

  11. Very beautiful colors! I love colors but I do not succeed to draw well with it.

    1. Don't give up, Christine. There are a lot of good video tutorials to help you develop confident coloring skills :)

  12. The combination of Keeko and Rainkin is beautiful. I was thinking of doing those two too, but came up with something else :-)

    1. Sometimes I wish I had waited to see if I could combine both challenges on purpose, Annemarie, but I just don't have the patience to wait a few days :)

  13. I love the way you put together Keeko and Rainkin. The spectrum noir colors are beautiful on the tan tile.

    1. Thanks Kate. I find the Spectrum Noirs to have a delicate tone to them. Not a lot of pigment, but they are good for gentle coloring.

  14. Love your wormhole. And your totally different adaptations of Rainking.

    1. Oh, I agree, Kia. I hated apples as a child for that reason. I love them now!

  17. Wonderful are all! Especially I like the second tile with Rainking. Great shading and wonderful contrast! Perhaps a reason why I like the just that tile is I do love black and white artwork!
    Your inchie is so cute and made me smile!

    1. Always fun to try something new, isn't it Margaret? That's what I love about the challenges. So many interesting tangles out there.

  20. What's worse than finding a worm in an apple? Finding half a worm!! Beautiful work, as always. Love the colors on your Diva tile.

    1. LOL! Absolutely, Jennifer! Half a worm would be horrible :)

  21. You're right about Keeko being a good "filler" or background tangle and it is relatively easy to do which is good for times we might lack focus---like at least half the country at the moment. I took a look at your other page and the art from your Copic conference. Really nice!

    1. It's interesting to me, Suzanne to see how neatly most people do Keeko. I will have to try that sometime :) Thanks for looking at my other page as well. I have a lot more patience with perfecting coloring.
