Diva Challenge 224 - Tipple

Hurray! I confess I've been waiting for a challenge to do a Tipple monotangle and today is my lucky day!

I think I did this last September whilst waiting for my son to do a round of archery. A pleasant Sunday morning, taking in some good coffee and typical 'tostada' breakfast, which is a good long chunk of toasted baguette, topped with fresh tomato, olive oil and a sprinkle of salt. I could digress further.....but will stop now.

And I've been waiting patiently ever since, knowing that one day it would come.

I enjoyed this SOOOO much and I may well do another before the week is out.

I wish Laura a great summer break - time for family and other fun things - and look forward to the challenges that her guests will set us!

See the other entries over on the Diva's blog or have a go and enter the challenge yourself!



Hmmm... just noticed...no shading! How remiss of me!!

  5. I think the "shading" was done by the size of the tipple orbs. It is an interesting and fun piece.

  8. So beautiful - I don't think it needs shading. Love the abstract feel to it.

  9. Nicely done - the variation in sizes of circles gives a sort of shading effect!

    1. I know that some of the circles are far too small to shade - I'm not going to worry any more, you've all been very kind! Axxx

  10. such a quirky, fun shape! It is coming to my mind that tipple is capable of great calm, while still being so active. This is a piece that does just that. Good going!

  13. Nice simple composition. I have to agree with the previous comments that the smaller and varied orb sizes creates a shading effect.

    1. Thank you Donald. I couldn´t resist and went back to my original drawing and added some shading. I haven't reposted but at least now I know it definitely looks better - not much, but a bit! Axxx
