An easy to do geometric doodle pattern. I think grid based patterns are very suitable for beginners – you just have to fill in the squares repeatedly with simple lines and you get interesting intricate shapes. And when you color them in you get lovely patterns. The black pen is Faber-Castell PITT artist pen size S and the color ones are United Office Fineliner pens: pink, dark green and light green. I plan on making a bookmark with this pattern and when it’s done I’ll post a picture.
A small mandala drawn freehand. It takes some practice to keep the lines and spaces in between even but it’s very relaxing and fun to draw without compasses and rulers. The black pen is as usual Faber-Castell PITT artist pen size S. The color pens are Aihao Colorpia Fine Liner – a set of 12 colors. Unfortunately I don’t remember where I bought them since it was a few years ago – before I started doodling more consistently – and there isn’t a lot of info about them on the Internet. It’s a sad thing because the colors are so bright and lovely. You can see a picture of the pens here.
