In CPT we embrace color! This week we will discuss using colored pens to tangle.

Picking colors

Complementary Colors

I prepared 2 Mandalas using Faber Castell Polychromos to demonstrate the same design drawn with Split Complementary and Triad color combinations:

Split Complementary Triad

Now it is really only a matter of personal taste. But my conclusion is that both combinations look harmonious.

Here is the triad color combination digitally colored:

Another option to pick colors is to do a Google Search for Color Palette or look on pinterest.

What I personally really like about tangling in color, there are no harsh black lines!

And here is yesterdays tangle. I drew this last night when I couldn’t sleep using ballpoint pens:

Regular tangling, CPT tangling, Mandalas, or even Steampunk. Give it a try to use a colored pen this week when tangling. Share your artwork in our Facebook group.

I am looking forward to your creations!
