Another zentangle, which I started at a lunch time craft session a few weeks ago. The central pattern was created from a randomly drawn ‘string’, sectioned by lines crossing its centre. I tried out a few new patterns in this one and played around with shading to add some depth.

One of the first patterns I inked in was the curling ‘question mark’ in the top left hand section. This quickly started to dominate the illustration though, so I ‘suspended’ the whole tangle from a striped cord, which helped frame the composition, and added the spiral ends to both echo and counterbalance the ‘question mark’.
