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’s prompts were Ship and the tangle Singapore Sling or Auraknot…
I’ve got to say that this inktober exercise is helping me be more willing to try things that I might not have tried before… both in materials and in attempting to draw objects that aren’t abstract. Today’s prompt of Ship had me looking at various types of ships wondering what I felt I was capable of drawing… I chose a cargo ship because I can draw cubes pretty well, so I thought that was a good place to start. I wasn’t really sure how I was going to incorporate the zentangle pattern Singapore Sling into the drawing… as the water? part of the ships hull? perhaps the sides of the cargo boxes? Eventually I decided on the sky… channeling Eni Oken’s tiles where she uses color in the negative space to continue making tangles like in this example.
