Page 24 {Zentangle Inspired Sketchbook}

Hi everyone 🙂

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. 😀
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.

Correspondence Course Assignment 5

Hi everyone 🙂

I had finished workbook five of my correspondence course and had sent my finished drawing/painting to them. The workbook was about colours and I had to draw two apples (one red and one green) at the end.
I got the drawing/painting back yesterday with my grade.
I got a 1.3 and the criticism was that I should paint more translucent with my watercolours. I’ll now start with workbook six, which is about plants and flowers.

Sketchbook Page 23

Hi everyone 🙂
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. 😀
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. 😀
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. 😀

Zendoodle Sketchbook

Hey guys,

I’m really into Zentangle and Zentangle Inspired Art again. I have started to draw in a Sketchbook, where I want to fill every page with Zentangle Inspired Art.
I also bought a new video camera recently (wich is really nice) and recorded a video where I draw in my Sketchbook. I hope yo like it. 🙂

Rose Painting

Hello guys 🙂

I’m really into acrylic flower painting lately (very inspired by Katie Jobling). I made a few floral sketches in my sketchbook. Then I bought some cheap acrylics and canvases and painted the following painting. I’m actually really proud of it 😀
I think I’m going to paint more with acrylics in the next time.
