Inktober (Day 18)…

I’ve decided to do Inktober this month. 😀  Find out more about Inktober, here. Basically it’s a month long encouragement to draw every day.

Today I decided to incorporate both the official prompt list and the zentangle prompt list.

Today’s prompts were Filthy and the tangle Ix


Today’s prompts were a bit more difficult… I wracked my brain for what to do for Filthy… at first I thought about adding brown watercolor to simulate mud, but then I told myself that I was ‘cheating’ for that prompt because I wasn’t drawing it in ink.  So I continued trying to figure out what to do, I tried to draw a mud splatter, but I just wasn’t feeling it and tossed it aside.  Then I told myself that it was my tile and I made the rules… and there is only one rule: Be creative this month, everyday.  So I went back to my original idea and made a splatter with brown, black and white watercolors to be ‘filthy’.  Then I tangled the zentangle pattern Ix all over the filthy tile.  I’m glad I went back to my original idea, I think it turned out rather neat. 😀

By the way, can you see a bird or penguin shape in the black watercolor?

For my husband’s morning tea, I practiced Ix


The pups are insanely cute… but they like to put their faces and heads in odd places… Penny is leaning up against a cabinet, Duke is dangerously close to the wheels of the office chair…

Until next time…
