After a very frustrating start to the day when I couldn't get my new i-pod to load any tunes - I even had Tanya and Bart on the phone and computer trying - I gave up and took myself off to the seafront with a journal and a couple of Pitt pens and had a relaxing lunch while people watching and drawing. I have had my first go at drawing a new craze called zentangles. It's just a very relaxing way of doodling, something I have always done but in a more undisciplined fashion.
This is my first and was done in the bar - the waitress kept popping over and a girl of about 12 kept peeking too. Blank page to finish 2 hours less lunch - see if you can spot the 5 words on there...
This next one was done when I got home thoroughly addicted...
These last two were random lines and random patterns but this third one is a little bit different in that it has a theme of a flower garden. I don't know if you are supposed to do this - but I just did!!!
If you look up zentangle on Google it says you should give yourself 15 minutes....my three took between 9 and 10 hours to complete...maybe I'll get faster with practice!!...but in fairness they are very detailed.
Again, it is well past midnight so I'll just make a hot choccy drink and take myself off to bed so
Bye for now
