A Dash of Doodles – 3

Here’s another set of Zentangle-inspired doodles that I made recently –

Most of my gel pens are awesome–they glide over paper well and create smooth lines. Some, however, have hiccups and vomit a bit of ink now and then, and I have to adjust–I generally end up incorporating the blob into my doodle. If that’s not possible, I’ll just leave it be.

Sometimes, however, I’m the one that accidentally creates smudges. ๐Ÿ˜‰ No matter how careful I think I’m being, these somehow end up being created after I’m done drawing, and mostly in areas that I’ve left empty! Don’t such occurrences make you wonder why and how they keep happening repeatedly? ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope you enjoy these doodles!

  1. Anita, what amazing doodles you have created! They are so beautiful, so interesting and very inspiring! I have never drawn doodles, maybe I should try to do something simple and see what happens.

    1. Thank you so much, Kaya! The doodling process is so meditative regardless of the complexity or the results. I’m happy that my doodles have inspired you to try out some doodling of your own, and I hope you have fun!

  2. Your Zentangle doodles are beautiful! Like out of a book of Zentangle! I love how your designs go in different directions and have so much depth. . I have a feeling that mine would all be the same boring curves and lines that just grow outward.

    1. Thank you so much Ginny! I add some shading to areas that I feel should be recessed, and that adds a bit of depth. For what it’s worth, I do think ‘plain and boring’ doodles are as much fun to create as any other kind–they look especially good on smaller paper. For my larger doodles, I spread them over multiple sessions, and find there’s something different I want to draw or color or shade or add in most sessions!
