Hi everyone 😊

I drew this Zentangle a few days ago and posted it on Instagram, but I nearly forgot to post it here too. 😁 I guess I was too busy making a new video.

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˜€
