This past week I have been doing some drawing and some doodling. I am not only trying to get back to painting on a more regular schedule, but I am trying to practice my drawing.
Part of this is zentangling. I find it relaxing and it tends to help with stressful situations. (I guess that is where the zen part comes into play) I did some zentangles with my drawing class a few years ago and really enjoyed it. I had combined it with watercolor and discovered that I could carry small paintings with me to zendoodle on as a way to calm my nerves.
Below are some more things I did this past week:
A drawing of a hand with drawing and painting tools as a favor for my son.
Quick charcoal sketch of a girl I did in between meetings
An experiment with splashy watercolor and zendoodling. I decided I didn’t like it so never quite completed the drawing. However, I did learn some new cool designs.
A better painting of tulips for zendoodling. Let’s see what happens with this one.
