Celtic knots have long captured the hearts of artists with their mystique. In this hour-long lesson, learn how to create and shade freeform knots to combine with your Zentangle® art. I mention "Celtic-inspired" instead of purely Celtic because the real Celtic knots have profound meaning and rules which are beyond the scope of this lesson. You'll learn an easy to learn technique to create overlap without having to draw too many pencil guidelines!

Intermediate/Advanced hour long video lesson, including bonus PDFs
