My goal for the year is to finish all the projects that I have started. This project I started in October. I was doing the my version of Inktober by drawing daily in my sketch pad during October. I drew the outline for this design and then I had to make a large drawing. This drawing was done on 16″x20″ art board using Sharpies, Faber Castell pens, and Sakura Metallic Pens. After the initial drawing and coloring, I know it needed something more. Months later, I settle on the “more” I wanted to add. It is based off Zentangle’s Crescent and variation of Paradox.
This drawing of tiny flowers was done with pencils.
This drawing was done on a 16″ x 20″ Art Board. It took a very long time to finished. (Okay, I had to stop and declare it finished.) It was inspired by art work I saw on TV. Every time the circles cross each other, they changed colors.
I was created with Derwent Watercolor Pencils and Derwent Inktense Pencils.
Here is my 2019 Christmas Card.
Flowers and more flowers. Done with Derwent Inktense Pencils on 16″ x 20″ Carson Artboard. Inktense is like watercolor pencils, the only difference is once water is applied, it’s permanent. One tip I used was, if you outline in color pencils, it will help with the bleeding. So, I used Prismacolor pencil on the outline.
I’ve been busy doing other things, but I have managed to do a few 3.5″ x 3.5″ drawings. Most of these drawings were done to test the pen colors for larger drawings.
This drawing was done with Sakura Gel Pens on a 16″ x 20″ Carson Art Board.
This drawing was done on a 16″ x 20″ Carson Black Art Board using Sakura Moonlight pens. Once the center was done, the edge went in it own direction.
This mandala was done on 16″ x 20″ Carson Black Art Board using Sakura Metallic pens. When I am using colors in my drawings, I like using as many different colors as possible.
I first sketched in a grid using circles and lines, then I applied the color.
