Blooming Doodle walk through

floral zentangle ink sketch

I have a little walk through of my blooming doodle to share today.

Hope your day is wonderful! πŸ’š

initial sketch for zentangle

Starting off with a basic drawing of floral shapes for this doodle.

I like having some overlapping pieces that make it more interesting.

After I select a pattern, I try to use it in a few sections near each other.

With some trial and error I have found that I like a variety of light and dark areas in my doodles.

I’m still playing and learning as I go…

It slowly starts to take shape as more areas are filled in. In this piece I used few different pen sizes, 04, 02, and 005.

Sometimes the patterns end up a bit different than planned but that’s ok. There are no rules in doodling and that always feels good.

This type of art is fun and relaxing. I love having a piece in progress that I can pick up and work on in the evening.

The final piece makes me happy. 😊 This type of post is always fun for me to put together. I hope you enjoyed it as well.

Thank you for stopping by and following along.

Until next time, share a smile and stay excellent!
