more zentangle art and experimenting....trying to create something every day....

Noah had requested I make a birdhouse...so he had specific colors he wanted me to use...and this was the result..it did not take but a few minutes...as he just doesn't hang around very long...lol...



this did not turn out exactly like I wanted but oh well...I am still experimenting


I need to get me some WHITE markers/pens! I cannot do details on black yet without them!


Playing with colors and experimenting with my new pens which contain India ink...I really want to do a realistic type drawing/painting in shades of blues....whites....greens perhaps...so I wanted to see what a small area would sort fo look like.

ZENTANGLE....learning a new art form.....




I have been trying my hand at learning how to ZENTANGLE.....I am not using fine-tipped pens or pencils yet as I don't have any handy....so these are not as finely detailed as they probably should be...but I am loving this new creativity format....and have had a lot of fun in producing some art.

What is Zentangle? Zentangle is an easy to learn method of creating beautiful images from repetitive patterns. It is a fascinating new art form that is fun and relaxing. It increases focus and creativity. Zentangle provides artistic satisfaction and an increased sense of personal well being. Zentangle is enjoyed by a wide range of skills and ages and is used in many fields of interest.

Here are a few things I have created so far....I tried a colored one too since I had sort of ruined it anyway...
