Zentangle & Botanical Drawing

I am back with my recent Zentangle drawing. This one took a lot of time mostly because I had to look up new patterns to draw. I learnt few new patterns (forgot their names though)
At this point I was totally lost on what to draw next.

The Final Look

I attended a Botanical Drawing Workshop by Sydney illustrator Adriana Picker, author of book The Garden of Earthly Delights. Her sketches and illustrations are absolutely amazing. The workshop was held at Kinokuniya Book store, where Adriana showed us some of her beautiful works and gave us few assignments to work on - both with left and right hand. We then discussed on which app she uses for colouring, the brand of pen and paper to draw and how she comes up with ideas. Have a look!!

  2. That is so inspiring. I love doodling as it puts my mind to rest but now I have something to learn 'Zentangles' and believe it is a more organised art.

    1. The app was for coloring... you scan the design and then pulling the app. For ideas and patterns I usually Google... there are step by step tutorials for different patterns. I can share some link if you are interested. Thanks Parul :)

  15. Your zentangle is looking fantastic. I have saved few zentangle pins and tried few simple ones. They are great stress busters isn't it?
