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.
It started out being a spider’s web, it ended up being something different.
Done on 16″ × 20″ art board using Sakura Gel Pens. And, it glows under a black light.
This mandala was the result of me getting a design / pattern stuck in my head and the need to put it on paper. Is was done on a 16″ x 20″ using Sakura gel pens.
After the design was put on paper, I thought the background was to plain. I colored it with watercolor ink using a sponge.

Mandala – 007
September 7, 2018
This is probably my first successful drawing using alcohol ink pens, well somewhat. Alcohol ink dries quickly but it bleeds very badly. One tip I read with using alcohol ink was to outline the area in matching color pencil.
This drawing is a mixture of Faber Castell Pitt Pens, Prismacolor Pencils, and Chameleon Pens.
Still traveling. This morning I had time to draw a mandala.
I was wise enough this morning to stop when the drawing looked good, instead of trying to fill the page.
I was going to make the flower more detailed, but after I drew in the leaves I thought in looked good.
There are 25 circles which makes this flower drawing. It was colored in a pattern. Can you tell what the pattern was?
The drawing was done on a Studio Series Artist tile with Faber Castell Pitt Pen and Prismacolor pencils.
The pattern was two part: Areas that do not overlap, were not colored; and the lighter shades of colors were connected.
My inspiration for today’s drawing comes for a lace curtain I saw at a museum.
This is the lace design done in Corel Draw.
