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!

Crayola Color Pencils Colors:
Slate Gray, Light Blue, Maroon, Navy Blue, Orange, Mango Orange, Lemon Yellow, Orchid Purple, Yellow Green, Magenta
