My drawing is Zentangle related because I used the watercolor pencils I purchased with the idea of adding color to my Zentangles. I decided it was finally time to get them out of the box. After watching a short video and reading some further instructions, I decided to spend my limited time learning to use the pencils rather than creating an original drawing.
First I found a drawing I liked online and printed it. This drawing of tulips and a stained-glass background had a Zentangle feel to it.
. . . using pressure and blending colors to create shadows and highlights.
Once the drawing was completely filled in and highlights/shadows added, I used small paintbrushes and water to blend the colors. The pencil tips can be dipped directly in water to add more vibrant color and deeper shadows.
It's a long way from a professional watercolor, but the pencils are a lot of fun to work with and I know more than I did when I started. I will definitely be working them into my Zentangle drawings - as soon as I get back into the Zentangle swing.
