Today’s Art of Concentration drawing is more typical of the drawing I used to do in meetings and classes. It wasn’t anything too complicated, just some lines and occasionally other objects.
Remember you can do these types of drawing on any size of paper from “Post-It” note size to letter size, or larger. If you create them using ruled paper, you already have some lines premade.
The line drawing:
The Art of Concentration rules are:
- Draw lines on a page. Circles, squares, squiggly lines, it does not matter.
- Color every other section. Start anywhere. Use any color.
- If you desire, use multiple colors. Sections of the same color can not touch.
The first object created was the flower and than squiggly lines added. Notice the top left of the circle in the middle of the page. There are more than two section that are touching. The rule “Section of the same color can not touch” will not work here. To solve that dilemma, I used multiple colors.
The flower petals were done in a deep red and white. The center and background was done in black and white. It doesn’t even look like a circle. That is why I named today’s hand drawing “Squid”. Looking at if after is was done, it looked more like a squid then a flower.
Squid was done on a black Studio Series Artist tile using Sakura gel pens.
The line drawing was done in Corel Draw and exported as a bitmap to color using Microsoft Paint. I decided to use three colors and black on the second drawing with white line.
