Lunchtime Doodle – 05/01/2017


20170501_123747

I figured since I have been drawing a lot of flowers lately, I would continue with the theme and create something new. So today over lunch, I decided that I would take my 45 minutes and draw. I LOVE the way this flower turned out. It gave me several ideas about flowers in the future.

I would love to know what you think about this lunchtime doodle!

Lunchtime Doodle – 4/25/17


Check this flower out! This is something I have never drawn before but as I was laying down last night trying to rest my head, I was thinking about how I could draw a flower that was unique. 

The good thing about this flower is that each section can be decorated differently. These are just the ones that I chose. I would love to see what you can do with the basic outline of this flower. If you email me your works of art,  I will post them on this thread or you can link it in the comments below. 

Very Big Sketchbook – Page 7


This is the seventh page in my Sketchbook. I wanted to do something very different than the other pages. This didn’t turn out like I had envisioned,  but at the same time it seems very fun. 

I learned by trial and error how to draw a new flower for future drawings. The flower at the bottom is the one I am referring to. I may color this in the future one day but right now I am gonna keep it black and white. 

What is your favorite part of this piece? Tell me in the comments below. 

Patterned Mandala


Zentangle 7

Sometimes making a mandala simple, and creating a difficult or busy background is more fun, than actually producing a difficult mandala. This was one of those times. I loved creating this piece as it tested my ability to think of different patterns to create the detailed background I was looking for.

Do you like a detailed mandala with a simple or nonexistent background, or would you rather see more detailed backgrounds on a simple mandala like this? Let me know in the comments.
