Zengems on Opus


Does this Opus tile look joyful?
 
Hope so, I'm loving the Renaissance Opus tiles with plenty of room to play with colourful zengems. When I first started drawing gems I wasn't quite sure what to do next.....like, how do I fill in the spaces in between? I decided to make this one a sampler with round gems and a selection of colour. Fun, fun, fun!!
 
I used Prismacolor pencils for the zengems.

  1. Excellent work, as usual, Michele. Prismacolor is my go-to brand for colored pencils as well.

    1. Hi Susan, sorry I don't have step outs but I started by drawing random circles, coloured them in, tangled around the middle one and it grew from there. Hope that helps.
