Drawings and More Drawings

I am back with my art supplies for the next 10 days.   I was able to clean up some of the pencil lines and add color to the daily tile drawings, which I created since May 15, 2018, when my road trip to the Southern United States started.  Three drawings are missing from the list, since they are safe in south Louisiana.

Here is the link to all of the drawings:  Drawing Page  Some of the drawing a good and some were done quickly.  Below are some of my favorite:

Blanket Weave

Blanket Weave, because is just looks so comfy.  It is based on Karenann Young’s Weave pattern (Joy of Zentangle) and Zentangle pattern Bales.


Drawing was done on a white Studio Series Artist tile using many different pens.  Prismacolor pencil was used to outline the red areas.  I read that using a color pencil will help prevent color from markers, especially alcohol markers, from bleeding into other areas.  Chameleon Pens were used in the red area from shading and the area outside the center area for shading and the border.  Pigma Micron and Sakura pens were used for drawing the lines.  Faber Castell Pitt Pens were used for some of the shading.  An easer and blender were used to soften the color pencil lines.

Note about Chameleon pens:  I have not gotten the hang of them yet.  They tend to bleed through most paper, so use a piece of paper behind the art work.  The markers will bleed badly, unless you use paper designed for alcohol markers.  They do shade well and they were a life saver on my Christmas Card project.

Winds of March

If I would have planed the drawing first, it could have been kites inside of a kite.  Instead, I used the power of three and drew three kites.
