Sketchbook Challenge Update

It’s been awhile, but I have not forgotten the Sketchbook Challenge.  And yes, there are some gaps in my drawings.  One of the advantages of 3 weeks of watching the Tour de France is that I can play catch-up on my drawing.  Plus, I do have to say there has been some improvement in my drawing.  Most of what I am doing now leans toward zentangles, but there are some other sketches intermingled in there.

So to give an idea of what I have been up to, here are some selections from February.  My theme for February was mandalas, and for the most part that is what I drew.

feb 13  I was aiming toward a floral mandala here.  In fact, I got on this whole zinnia-looking for awhile.

feb 14 Was going for a compass rose style with this mandala.

feb 15 And this is one of my zentangle mandalas.  It’s not symmetrical, but I like it any way.

feb 17 I didn’t realize this one looked a little Celtic.

feb 20  I was really pleased with how this one turned out.

feb 21  And another one I particularly I like.

feb 22  Getting better I do believe.

feb 23 Another attempt at a mandala, which I am pleased with.  I think I am getting a little better at judging size and getting things the same size and shape.

The sketches through May are all 6 x 6 in size.  Starting in June I graduated to 9 x 9 and I have some nice sketches yet to debut.
