Realtime Tutorial Doodle Zen gems, Episode 2: Opal Gem Flower

Welcome to Episode 2 in my Doodle Gem, Zen Gem, Zentangle Gem Tutorial, How to draw Series.

In this episode we are exploring Opals. I use an image of an Opal from the Lightning Ridge Opal Mine in Australia as my inspiration. Just Google Search to find an opal that you like!

We start with a fun doodle flower and that is inked with a Pigma Micron 01 Pen on Neenah 110 lb bright white cardstock paper. 

The color in this project was all done with Crayola Color Pencils. Yes, really! I Show you step by step what I did to make this Gem! Coloring, blending, shading. I do share what I'm thinking about the drawing and the pencils as I go through the process. Then I speed color the doodle. The whole project took about 1 hour.

I hope you enjoy the process and share what you are doing! All my social media is listed below. Just tag me so I can find them!

Slate Gray, Light Blue, Maroon, Navy Blue, Orange, Mango Orange, Lemon Yellow, Orchid Purple, Yellow Green, Magenta

Time to go through the Looking Glass

Hello all!

This week I"m participating in a wonderful Art Crawl on Youtube: Through the Looking Glass hosted by Artsplorations with Mark Muir.

14 Youtube Artists are pulling out all the stops and taking you on an adventure! You'll meet many characters and see sights never seen before There are paintings, soft sculpture, Pen and Ink drawings, and even Polymer Clay. This is not a Disney Wonderland. :)

I am doing a Soft Sculpture Dormouse with a bonus video of how to make a cardboard Teapot just for added measure! You even have access to a PDF Pattern of the Dormouse that I drew up. This is the actual pattern I used to make this Dormouse. Though on the one in the video I left off the back legs since the video was getting long and the Dormouse sits inside the teapot!

Click the link below the photo to go to the Youtube video for the project!

Easy DIY Blooming Watercolor Speed Painting Zen Doodle

New video up --can we say I'm already dreaming of Spring? What do you think?

Should I do more Speed Paint/Draw type videos?

This is so easy but has a lot of impact. Use what ever colors your heart desires. This painting was a sort of magenta, 2 colors of blue and 3 colors of green. Then dried with a hairdryer and doodled with a black pen. I think I will be doing a few more of these.

I may even do a coloring sheet!

Remember to get out and do something creative!
