GoPro Ocean by JennDixonPhotography
GoPro Ocean
This was taken almost at high tide on a day that the ocean was especially rough in the Outer Banks, North Carolina, USA.  Taken with a GoPro Hero4 Silver.  The fish eye effect is sort of cool.
Three Birds by JennDixonPhotography
Three Birds
To practice drawing textures and coloring, I traced these birds out of a birding book that was in the house my family was recently staying in on vacation.  Birds seemed like a great change of pace from flowers and leaves.  Media:  Traced on Bristol vellum board and colored with Prismacolor Color-erase pencils.
You've probably noticed these funky drawing popping up what is primarily a photography page. 

I'm going to tell you more about Tangle Art.  The text below comes from my blog,  It may be the same entry, but there's a lot of other good stuff there, too!

So here's what's up with Tangle Art.

On Thursday, April 14, 2016 I took a Tangle Art class taught by Kristen “Tink” McQuillin at The Squeeze Spot in Ephrata, PA.  It was a great class, and I’ve sort of taken off running with it.

Tink is my friend Jenny’s sister, and she was visit Jenny and other family while she is in the states from her residence in Japan.  She taught line techniques, patterns, layers, and even how to color our tangles.  That was the first part of the class.  For the second, we did a meditation, focusing on ourselves.  Here’s what I did during that.  I only finished it halfway there, and completed it at home.

At first, I wasn’t too keen on it.  I thought my tangle was dull and didn’t quite work.  Still, I thought out about it, and soon found myself on Friday at work creating the piece at the top of the post.

I then worked on another.  And another.

I think I’m hooked.

I’ve been posting them on my deviantART account, where they haven’t received much notice.  That’s ok.  I most posted them there in case I want to buy prints of the tangles there, but I wouldn’t mind if you popped over there to take a closer look, too.

These drawings also bring me back to my childhood.  I remember as a second grader, I would spend endless hours working on similar drawings.  My dad, who worked in a print shop, would bring home fun paper, in both colors and size, and I’d fill them up with shapes and crayon colors.  My crowing moment was when I presented on of these masterpieces to my teacher at the time, Mrs. Shoemaker.  She then got some magnets and displayed my artwork on the side of her metal desk.  I was quite proud of myself.

I think that’s part of the fascination I have with them right now, along with the adult coloring book craze that is happening right now, which I’m also into, by the way.  Still, I derive more satisfaction from tangle art than the books.  Why?  The drawing are my own original artwork!

To be clear, I cannot draw realistically to save my life, BUT, and I can do lines, arcs, circles, squiggles, and dots, the basic shapes that make up tangle art.  I can look at layers.  I can color with some basic shading, too.  It’s perfect for me!

So, that’s how I go into this tangle art thing.  I love it.  I think you will, too.

That's what' up with those crazy drawings.  Expect to see more of them.  :)
