A few days ago, in my news feed on Facebook, one of the weather sites that I follow posted this image of an impending storm. This is a windflow map (not sure if that's an official name, but it indicates the flow of the winds). I really thought it was so pretty and it inspired me to do the drawing below in my little art journal.

I used some of my new colored Micron pens. (There are certain perks from working in a school office and getting e-mails from vendors, especially art supply vendors that I can order from outside of school and still get the coupons and sales.)
One of the tangles that I recently added to my tangle calendar was Tamisolo by Hanny Nura. I liked it a lot and thought that it would look pretty cool with color in those tips. I had recently gotten some new pencils (Caran D'Ache Pablo permanent color pencils) and wanted to give them a try. The top one with all the colors looks a little milky because I did go over the colored areas with the white pencil in the set in an attempt to use it as a blender. It did blend, but the downside was the milkiness of the colors afterwards.
On the second one I stuck with a certain pallet, one combination for all the tangles that went left and another for the tangles that went right.
This is a 3.5 x 5 inch journal with 100 lb. weight paper which makes it good for wet media and a little toothy for dry. The pencils do well on the pages with blending but I think it's a bit to toothy for the Micron pens, but that probably won't stop me for doing more work with the pens in it.
