Ugly #MixedMedia #ArtJournal #Rhodiarama


I really wasn’t in an ugly mood when I drew this, and it doesn’t really reflect my feelings at all.  Though I suppose it does say something about my views on human nature.

This was a ‘save’ in my Rhodiarama soft cover where I had experimented with some Tombow Dual Brush, Fudenosuke and Mono pens.  I didn’t have any real idea of what I wanted, other than that I was going to create the negative shape of a woman.

As so often happens, once I was part of the way done, I saw something.  In this case, I was creating the outline of the woman, but the white streaks made me think of a skeleton.  That made me see this woman, and the strange doggerel popped into my head after that.  My brain just works this way.  It was the art that was feeling ugly – not me.  Honest.

I’ll be posting a step-by-step challenge for the Zentangle All Around Facebook group using this method on August 2.

Artist Ambassador for Zebra Pens. I'm a self-taught artist who dances about with all sorts of artistic mediums. My main loves are Watercolor, Zentangle and Ballpoint pen. The subjects of my work are many and varied and change at whim. I'm a little bit crazy, but doesn't that come with being an artist?
