Non Dom Tangle

Usually the tangles are done almost absent mindly as a wind down in the evening with the TV on some American Cop show likely as not!    This time it was a little different The Diva for her 13th challenge has instructed us to use our none dominant hand which in my case is my left.   I do use both hands when drawing, if my right blocks the work then my left takes over but the right is back in control as soon as it can be!    Some of the others following the challenge noted how their dominant hand snatched the pen back, not a problem in my case.   It was my brain that was effected I'm used to just doodling away without thinking about the patterns or design but with pen in left hand simply could not think of a single pattern hence the rather basic shapes and lots of voids here LOL.    A interesting and useful exercise might have another go sometime.

  3. What an interesting idea. I must have a go...I'm left handed so it'll be interesting to see if my right hand can cope lol!
    Have a lovely weekend.

  4. Thanks for your comment!! You non-dom tangle with its color accents reminded me of the soon-to-come summer. I saw birds in the air and tennis racquets along with the flowers.

    Think you are correct about left-handers being a bit more able - it is a right-handed world and we have adapted. I grew up in a house full of righties and even learned to knit and crochet that way.

    I'm in the middle of another right-handed tangle and finding it more meditative and deliberate that the one I did for the Diva. Will continue.....

  10. What an interesting experiment. Cannot imagine how it would affect you like this but it did. Not sure I cope well with Zentangles at all but with my left hand?
    Well done you for creating such a lovely result.

  13. Your tangle is precious. I love the little hints of color at the center. It reminds me of fishnets with thier catch being pulled out of the sea. A treasure held within.
