Voor deze challenge koos Laura voor Siri (Si van Simone and ri van Ria). Het maakt me blij dit mooie patroontje in de hoofdrol te zien. Ik heb Siri als kader getekend hoewel het ook heel mooi kan zijn als achtergrond. In mijn kompositie heb ik volgende tangles gebruikt: Siri, Crescent Moon, Tink en het fragment K14. De “achterliggende” vakjes werden gekleurd met zwarte, paarse , rode en turkooise pennen en een grijs potlood. Opvullen met Perfs zie je regelmatig in mijn werk opduiken en ook hier gebruikte ik deze techniek.

For this challenge, Laura chose Siri (Si = Simone and ri = Ria). I’m glad to see this lovely pattern in the leading role. I chose to draw Siri as a frame but it looks nice as a filler too. In my composition I have used Siri, Crescent Moon, Tink and the fragment K14. I filled some “squares in the background ” with black, purple, red and turkoois pens and a grey pencil. Regulary I  like to use Perfs to fill empty spaces and that is what I did here also.

    This well-behaved Tink is perfectly framed by the lovely Siri, and beautifully filled with the vibrant perfs. Such a great composition, and quite different, too!

      Thank you Jennifer. I have a personal legend with the tangles I like. It is very pleasant to take a look on those pages. Always I see a tangle that I didn’t use for a while and than it is nice to draw such a forgotten tangle again. In this case it was Tink, one of the oldies but easy and very nice to draw.

    Dear Ria,
    What a beautiful composition and colours! I was very happy when I realized that SIRI was the UMT tangle this week and I am so grateful that you gave me the inspiration for this tangle. I am so happy to see all the beauties. Thank you so much for your lovely comment as well!

    This is fantastic! I love how bold and graphic it is?

      Ria Matheussen says:

      Thank you MIchele. Me too like the combination of these two (a bit forgotten) tangles. With every challenge, I learn a bit and I’m glad you like this tile, which is a bit different from my other work, but it is nice to variate and try out different things.

      That is a nice compliment Melissa, thank you very much. Mostly I use colourpencils. On this tile, I used coloured pens, that was knew for me, I’m glad you like the result.

    Erg mooi, ik vind Siri met die aura’s prachtig! Ik hoop dat jij en je man nu ook opgeknapt zijn. Inmiddels is mij duidelijk dat je nog een hele tijd moe bent nadat je wel beter bent. Maar ….. de lente komt 🙂

      Ria Matheussen says:

      Dank je wel Annemarie voor je lieve woorden.
      Met ons beiden gaat het inmiddels weer een heel stuk beter, ja een dagje ouder en dan komt er een beetje sleet op. Jezelf goed verzorgen is de boodschap.
      Ik wens jou ook het allerbeste en voor je het weet, ben je weer de “oude”.

    I love the colourful perf pearls, really made the whole Tangle so alive.

      Ria Matheussen says:

      Thank you Trudi. I love to fill empty spaces with Perfs and I do it a lot, most of the time just with a black pen. As you can see, I have used for this tile coloured pens and I’m glad you like it!

    Ria, I had to laugh when I saw your tile. How on earth did you come up with this design idea. With you I never know what the tile will look like when I click on a link. You surprise me again and again like with this simple but absolutely beautiful tile! Very clever indeed, Ria!
    PS: if you gave me a bit of your weather and I gave you a bit of my weather we would be in heaven! Yes, the hot season has turned up and just standing in the sun with the only movement I do is breathing I break into a sweat!

      Ria Matheussen says:

      Thank you Susie for your nice comment.
      As you know, Siri is already a bit older and this tile is made very soon after the publication. I never sent it in for a challenge, so today was the day… I’m glad I still can surprise you. Please take a look at Tink, that is also an old but lovely tangle, can draw it straight as I did but you can also make it very irregular.
      Oh, now I am jealous, I long for long hot summerevenings….

    A wonderful interpretation of this very nice pattern SIRI with friendly colouring, Ria!

      Ria Matheussen says:

      Thank you very much Margarete. I was flattered when Simone used a part of my name in this pattern. Maybe it is not so wellknown but when it is drawn wit care, it can be beautiful in many combinations and compositions.

    Lovely way to use Siri! Nice color too!

      Thank you Anita. I’m longing for the real springtime after all the coldness and therefore I have chosen to use fresh colours on my tile. I’m glad you like the result.
