I found a couple photos of people and children on Pinterest that I'd been wanting to sketch. Narrowed it down to an elderly lady and a child. I think children's faces are hard to sketch, because if they're not done properly they look like adults, not children. So I decided to start with the elderly lady's face first. I got as far as getting an outline done. Realized it would take me too long to get it done for this week's challenge. Zentangles - a good standby for sketching something quickly that is still fun to do.
Here is the Zentangle I did this week for Week 15 of the 365 Days of Art Challenge:
|6" x 6" Zentangle-Inspired Art on mixed-media paper done with|
Sakura 0.005, 0.01, 0.03, and 0.08 micron black pens and pencils.
I drew a series of loops for my string. I used Ennies, Floatfest, Frickle, Knightsbridge, Linq, Mooka, Pepper, Sparkle, and Zinger tangles. I'm pleased with the result. Now if I could get the paper to lay flat so I wouldn't get the shadowing on the bottom of the page when I photographed it, I'd really be pleased.
