zendoodle art & stuff
Here are two tiles featuring variations of tangle patterns Flux and Nymph. I colored them with pencils and found out I really enjoy working with pencils. Up until now I usually used pens to color in tangles, but I plan to use pencils much more often in the future.
A video showing how to draw a relatively simple mandala suitable for both beginners and more experienced doodlers. For this one I used Faber-Castell PITT Artist Pens F and S from this set of four and an Uni Pin 0.1 pen for the finer lines.
A quick and fun small doodle that turned out quite nicely. I used a Staedtler Triplus Fineliner and for the finer lines and the dots I used a Faber-Castell pen, but any 0.1 fineliner will do just fine.
Forest house free coloring page. This started out as a random doodle that grew into a whimsical house surrounded by greenery. I colored it in with Faber-Castel Pitt Artist Brush Pens, which are great for coloring small intricate details but also get a good coverage for larger spaces.

The Paisley is a great shape to tangle, especially if you can’t think of a design. When I get stuck and have a hard time coming up with ideas, I just draw a paisley shape and tangle inside it. Here is an example. For this video I used a Faber-Castell Pitt artist pen size S from this set of four. For the finer lines I used a Uni Pin fineliner 0.1
I made these as a birthday present for a friend of mine. The box is a veneer ready to paint on box that I found at a local arts and crafts store. The pendant I made from air-dry clay which is great because it doesn’t require oven baking and dries to a solid. Then I painted both the box and the the pendant with acrylic paints and used a water-based acrylic varnish as a finishing.
A small square zentangle (also called tile) that is easy and quick to do. Perfect for beginners. You can use any fineliner pen, but for this particular drawing I used a Staedtler triplus fineliner and Centropen 0.1 for the thinner lines.
My first mandala on canvas. I went for blue and pink – plus white for some highlights, of course – and I’m happy with the result. I used acrylic paints on a stretched canvas (square, 20×20 cm or 8×8 inches).
