Zentangle Challenge #38 Better Than a Pair of Ducks

The title for this week's challenge is a take-off on 'Paradox', the only tangle we're to use for the challenge.  When I found out that we could only use Paradox, I was a little worried.  I tried the tangle once before and was discouraged with the result.  I never tried again even though I love the look of it.  I was determined that 'this time' I was going to get it right.  I did a practice drawing and felt pretty confident that I had the concept.  Here are my two entries to the challenge in the order they were drawn.  I can't decide which I like the best.




The trick is to draw, turn, draw, turn.  I was getting a little dizzy on the first one.  I didn't shade them but I'm sure that would've added more interest.

To see other entries as well as a tutorial for drawing Paradox, visit I am the diva.

Hope you had a good day.

I'm amazed. I'm new to paradox and can't even begin to figure out how you did these beautiful tangles!

These are both wonderful!

I like both of them. The first one is crazy and chaotic in a good way while the second one is simple and straightforward. They are both fabulous. Great work!

They are both well done. I know when I'm doing Paradox right, drawing and turning when I get dizzy! What we do for our art!
