Inktober 2017 Week Two

Hi everyone 😊
I’m a bit late with this blog entry (and with Inktober in general). I went to Berlin for a few days and wasn’t really motivated to draw afterwards. I still have to catch up (I’m at day 16 of Inktober 😁).
I hope I can catch up and draw 31 Zentangle drawings for Intkober.

My drawing doesn’t look like autumn or Halloween anymore, but I like them anyway. Yesterday was my birthday and I got many new art supplies (I’ll show them to you soon). I’m really excited to draw and paint with them.

How is your Inktober going? 😘

Inktober 2017 Week 1

Hi everyone 😊

The first week of Inktober went by fairly quickly. I drew a lot of small and cute Zentangle drawings. Each one was inspired by autumn or Halloween. Additionally, I drew a Zentangle tile mosaic. It was my first time drawing something like this. I like it very much. You can see all of my drawings below.
I’m still sorry for the photo quality. I don’t know very much about taking photos and how to set up the light. I still have to learn.

Inktober 2017

Hello everyone 😊

Inktober 2017 just started and I’m participating again. I want to draw autumn inspired Zentangle or ZIA on Zentangle tiles every day.
I’m going to give you weekly updates and I want to make speed drawing videos too. I’ll upload them when Inktober is over. 🍁
You can see my first drawing below. The rest will come soon.

Happy Inktober! 😊

My first pattern

Hi everyone 😊

I created my first own pattern recently. The name of the pattern is Burtz. You can use it for Zentangle, Zentangle Inspired Art or just for doodling. I have also sent it to I hope it will be included on the page.
Feel free to use and share it. Please reference me, if you share it on Pinterest or other similar platforms.
The template where I drew my pattern onto is also byΒ

Hi everyone 😊

I finished the next page in my Sketchbook. I drew some very basic and easy patterns because I wasn’t really motivated to draw and I thought that I couldn’tΒ draw something beautiful because I had an art block.
I don’t know if it’s gone now, but I definitely feel better and I want to draw more.
I decided to add the coloursΒ very spontaneous at the end of the drawing. I used my Schmincke watercolours. I just used some colours that were already mixed on my palette. I like the page very much. I have painted a background for the next page already with the same colours.
I also recorded the drawing process so I’ll upload a video soon. 😊
Btw sorry for the bad foto quality… I’ll pay more attention to it in the future.

Hi everyone πŸ™‚

I wanted to draw a Zentangle on the weekend. I wanted to draw it just for fun and didn’t care if it was pretty or ugly. πŸ˜€
This page was fun to draw and I tried two new patterns (Aquafleur & Quipple). I like some parts of the drawing (Aquafleur at upper left & Hollibaugh variation in the middle) and I don’t like some parts of the drawing (Aquafleur at the lower right & Hollibaugh variation at the upper left). I think that’s ok.
I want to use the pattern Aquafleur more often in the future and I want to create more variations of the different Zentangle patterns.

Hi everyone πŸ™‚
I guess I can write something about my Zentangle inspired sketchbook pages, when I’m sharing them with you, so I’ll do that now.

I had some problems with this sketchbook page. I wanted to draw a leaf of a Monstera Deliciosa with Zentangle patterns inside, but shortly after I started, I began to not like it. πŸ˜€
My first thought was: The pattern doesn’t match the leaf. I wanted to rip the page off, but I didn’t. I wanted to continue and see what happens.

I liked the drawing after I finished the patterns. I wanted to add the colour next and used my watercolour pens.
After a few seconds, I realized that the green was too dark and one can’t see the pattern anymore (it seems lighter on the foto though).
I was frustrated and just scribbled the colour all over the leaf. I hated the drawing. πŸ˜€
I hated this page so much, but I didn’t want to rip it out so I used water to activate the watercolour. I think it looked much better after that.
In the end, I am happy with the outcome, even though I think I could have done this better. πŸ˜€
