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.
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
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.
I love painting stones and especially making mandala stones. The thing is, where I live it’s very hard to find stones with even remotely circular shapes, so I have to make do with what I find. However, you don’t need a perfectly circular shaped stone in order to paint a mandala. You just need a stone big and flat enough so that you can draw a decent sized circle on. The stone in the picture above was a great find, but it still wasn’t the perfect shape for a mandala. So here is what I did…
A small flower design done with two different pen sizes – an 0.8 fineliner that I unfortunately lost and for the finer lines I used a Staedtler Triplus Fineliner Black 0.3mm.
A small improvised doodle filmed with my phone. As usual I used a Faber-Castell PITT Artist Pen size S.
Zentangle Border Pattern #5 done with Faber-Castell PITT artist pen S and Faber-Castell Ecco Pigment 0.1.
A simple but pretty floral border drawn with Faber-Castell PITT Artist pen S, Faber-Castell Ecco Pigment 0.1 and colored in with a grey fine liner pen.
Another geometric doodle pattern suitable for decorating bookmarks and cards. It’s easy to do and there are many options for coloring – just use your imagination.
