Every once in a while it's good to go back to black and white and recapture some of the basics of Zentangle. The spontaneity of the string, using a single pen to make the art, it's very calming and soothing.

I started with a very simple string and added some Twisted Rope, a drawing technique I developed this year. The African Artist ogee grid formed naturally cradling the twisted rope. Here's a work in progress of the line-art:
