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.

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. 😀

Inktober 2016 Week Four

Hey guys,
My Inktober 2016 ended in week four. I made three Inktober drawings, but I added so much watercolour and acryl paint to one of them, I cannot call it an Inktober drawing anymore. 😀 After that, I didn’t really want to draw with ink anymore… Maybe it will be easier for me next year. Here are my last three Inktober drawings of 2016:

Intkober 2016 Week Three

Heys guys,

I mentioned in my last blog entry, that I have already missed a few days of Inktober in week two and three, and I lag behind again, but I’m motivated to catch up and draw the missing pieces. I want to show you my drawing of week three in this blog post. I hope you like it. 🙂

Inktober 2016 Week Two

Hey guys,

The second Inktober week passed quickly. I haven’t done a drawing every day because I wasn’t really motivated. I was kinda feeling ill and I didn’t know what to draw…  I messed up nearly every drawing in my opinion.

But now I have started again and made an Inktober drawing with my new Pental Brush Pen. I hope I’ll stay motivated this time. The following drawings are from the second Intkober week.

Inktober 2016 Week One

Heys guys,

Some of you, who follow me on Instagram, already know this, but I wanted to blog about it too. I  participated in Inktober this year. The first week has already passed by and I wanted to show you all of the drawings I have made. I hope I’ll stay tuned and keep drawing an ink drawing for Inktober every day.
