Draw, Doodle and Sketch

I love art...most any kind really. Although I focus on working with clay, and an occasional wall mural I have done many different crafts in my lifetime, I love looking at artist drawings, paintings and collage work. Here are some that I have taken joy in recently.









I decided that I wanted a sketch pad and some Micron pens for my birthday.  We had some errands to run in town (town is Quincy, IL and about 25 miles from our little village) so we made a stop at Hobby Lobby and I picked out my pad and pens. :) I can't tell you the last time I had a new sketch pad. I haven't concentrated on drawing for decades, other than the usual doodling while on the phone...or on my sermon notes. (shhhh...) I've been seeing some pictures of drawings that looked similar to my doodles and found out they were called Zentangles...how cool! So I've been tangling and here are a few examples. :) SO FUN!






I hope you enjoyed this little art show!

Blessings, Zuda Gay

Very enjoyable post. I recognize a lot of these artists :-) Can't wait to see what you do with those micron pens.

I feel like I can see the similarities between your clay flowers and your drawing... like I recognize that it's from the same artist, but I can't put my finger on why exactly I feel that way.
Looks good!

Julia, I hadn't seen that until you mentioned it. Thank you for your comments! :)

Zuda I just discovered these doodles are called zentangles. Someone called one of my drawings that I was like what? I just call them doodles. Your sketches are so beautiful! Thanks for including my leaves into your collection. What a pleasant surprise!

Beautiful! I didn't know that's what this was called. I have to show my daughter...this is what she does.

Kelly said...

Zuda, I love them!! You should seriously sell those.

Aloquin said...

Zuda, I reiterate what every one else says... but, if this is what you call "tangling", I can't wait to see what you do when you're producing for sale! Make some ACEOs!!! :) I'm sure they'll be gobbled up!

I hope the other artists won't be offended when I say that I like Zuda's the best! Very striking.

Oh my goodness, thank you all for your kind comments! I wasn't planning on selling any drawings. It really is a calming thing to do. :)
