I like Pokeroot and Drupe  but put those two together in just one tile was not so easy and a real Challenge for me!

I vind Pokeroot en Drupe 2 mooie tangles maar een combinatie van deze twee in één tile,  was niet zo evident en het was een echte uitdaging voor mij!

    Yours is a very original take on this duotangle challenge to use Drupe and Poke Root. Your composition is very elegant. I really like your use of the Renaissance colors and that your Poke Roots look like pearls.

      Thanks to Laura, we learn every week a little bit more. Without her, I would never make a drawing, only with Drupe and Pokeroot and when I began it was not evident, but after 2 “try outs” I liked my result, I’m glad you like my choise of using a Renaissance tile. Thank you Suzanne.

      Ria Matheussen says:

      Thank you Bine, I’ve never used Pokeroot as border but now I had to make the combination of Drupe and Pokeroot and so I tried to use them as border and I glad you like it!

    De uitdaging is deze keer vooral om er iets anders dan het te verwachtte van te maken denk ik. Jij deed dit leuk.

    Ria, I love your tile. The colors and highlights really make it stand out. Sometimes the greatest challenges turn out the best. And it is very beautiful.

      Ria Matheussen says:

      Thank you very much Melena and yes that is right: the greatest challenges can turn out the best, I never would make this combination but thanks to the Diva I did it. I like your tile too, unfortunately I’m not on social media, so I’m very sorry I can’t give feedback by that way.

    Erg mooi op deze manier. We hadden wel hetzelfde idee zie ik om high lights te maken. Mooi!

      Dank je wel Carmela. Highlights geven altijd dat tikkelje meer in je tekening, ik hou er wel van.

    Hello Ria, how smart you were to complete this challenge on a Renaissance tile! I love seeing the highlights on both tangles jump out and shine! Your simple pokeroot border with a single aura is just right.

      Ria Matheussen says:

      Initially I didn’t find this an easy challenge, therefore I’ve used a Rennaissande tile ( more special) A touch of white gives always a nice result on these tiles. I’m glad you like my work, thank you for this nice compliment!

    I love your tile, the colour choices and the sort of squaring of the round.

      Thank you Yorkshire Tortoise, I’ve tried a bit to change the usual pattern, glad you like it!

    Geslaagd ?
    Mooie tile. Ik ga ook zo een combinatie proberen in mijn oefenboekje waarin ik op 1 februari begonnen ben. Is leuk om in terug te bladeren.

      Ria Matheussen says:

      Dank je wel Maddy, zoals ik al zei, door mee te doen, leer je telkens iets bij. Voor mij was deze Challenge niet zo evident maar na een paar pogingen was ik dan toch tevreden met het resultaat. Een leuk idee, dat oefenboekje, je zal kunnen zien hoe je evolueert, heel zeker!

    You made a great combo of the two patterns! Whow!

    All the sparkle and the waviness of drupe is excellent.
