“Winter 2021” – Zentangle Inspired Art

This drawing was completed over two sessions.

The first one involved line drawing and adding shadows with a graphite pencil.

Part 2 involved adding some colour and shimmer, and plenty of ‘hiding the crimes’ too, with the gold border.

I rescued the drawing, but looking back, I wish I’d stopped at the end of the first video and just added some gold highlights to the berries. I also think that adding hatching, broken contour lines and stippling may have been much better than adding colour. Or, scanned the image in and added shadow and colour digitally!

I filmed these processes, and the two videos are below.
