Today’s Inspiration: Zendalas, ZenTangles and Mandalas

I have this thing about mandalas, and I’ve always been fascinated by ZenTangles, so it was a real delight to come across this video today:
 
 
Perfect inspiration. And I noticed she uses two types of pens – fine line and thick line.
I definitely want to give this a try.

Landscape Mandala (AEDM)

A little bit more of a hectic day today, but I did manage to finish this little mandala – very relaxing, and I didn’t blow the colours as badly as the last one!

Mandala No. 3

I spent far more time today with my nose buried deep in my work, and the funny thing is, I worked [...]

“Organic Blob” (AEDM)

At first, I wasn’t even going to post this for my latest Art Every Day Month piece; it didn’t exactly turn out the way I wanted, mostly because I chose the absolute wrong colour as the background. (I must admit, I did really love the swirls before I coloured in the background!).

Desert Mandala (AEDM)

This is my first completed “piece” for Art Every Day Month (AEDM). I enjoyed making this – it’s done with gel pens, and this new batch of gel pens flows very thick and inky; it almost feels like painting with pens! So I might actually try and complete one a day, instead of working on [...]

It’s Day 8 already! I have to confess something. I signed up for Blogtoberfest and feel kind of like I’m cheating because I’m already posting a Big Draw post every day! On the other hand, I just noticed that I’ve been posting at least two posts a day for all of October – I feel [...]

The Big Draw – Day 7: Playground, Cup & Lily

Today was such a good day – it’s always nice around here the day after I meet a deadline (unless I have back-to-back deadlines, in which case it can get a bit nuts). I did a lot of relaxing, and it seems I’ve now gotten into a bit of a drawing habit. When I sit [...]

Today Dylan decided to draw from life! Here’s his picture of a car:

And here’s the car he was drawing:

I was tired by late afternoon – I had a deadline today, and as always, after I meet a deadline, I just want to sit and zone out. Feeling pretty listless, I [...]

The Big Draw – Day 5: Kite and Dylan Playing the Wii

I can’t believe Dylan and I have been doing the Big Draw for five days now! It’s been an extraordinary and fun experience so far, and I’m already starting to feel a lot more confident about working with pen.

Dylan only drew one thing today, which was [...]
