Adding Color to my Doodle


As my readers know by now, adding color to my art is always stressful to me. I love leaving them black and white because I love seeing what other people see in the picture without me guiding them to one thing or another. This was no different.

I had created this drawing about a week ago. I was just sitting down and doodling and this is what happned. It just came to life on the page. I belong to a few groups on facebook specifically geared towards art and zentangle in nature, and they suggested that I color this one. The few friends I showed also suggested I color it.

So without further hesitation… TADA!

I have to admit, the outflow of compliments on my colored piece made me feel a littl emore confident. I wnted to drag the colors across the page instead of having one color on one side and one color on the other. So I made sure that I tried to balance the colors as I used them.

I am very interested in your constructive criticism or ideas on how I can improve. So, maybe I might try coloring more, since this one was so well received.

In need of guidance


It is always difficult for me to ask for help because I never want to feel like a burden to anyone. But I have come to a place in my life where I would like to publish some coloring books. My dilemma is the theme. If you have looked at my art, you can see what I am capable of and I am asking my readers to suguest themes that I could use to release several books. I am looking for about 50 images for each book. 

I have done mandalas, random art, zentangles, scenes, and things like feathers or leaves. 

Constructive criticism on my art is always welcome and I cant wait to get this project up and running.
