This is sort of a mix between neuropraphic art and zentangle. It was relaxing to sit back and just create sizes, shapes, shades…all of it. The only materials use were Micron pens (sizes 1, 2, 3, 5, and 8). The sketchbook paper is 90 lb white.
Part of me wants to add splashes of color to this art piece; what do you think? Also, my initials are hidden in the image, can you find it?
This painting (to the left) was my first attempt at neurographic art. It’s on cold press 140 lb Arches watercolor paper. I used Micron pens (various sizes) and Holbein Watercolors (whatever was on the palette).
This is really interesting, I’m going to try this!! It looks like a lot of fun!! What is your inspiration?
Hi there and thanks so much. It’s really a lot of fun, and I find that it’s relaxing to just sit back and get lost in the process. As for inspiration, it comes from many places. Check out YouTube for both Zentangle and Neurographic art styles. A specific artist who inspires me is Alphonso Dunn. I used his book & workbook to practice textures, shapes, shading, and much more. He sells the books (Pen & Ink Drawing) on Amazon (if you’re interested in checking them out) and he also has a YouTube channel. I hope this helps; please let me know how it goes for you. I’d love to hear.
Yes, absolutely! I’m going to do some reading and YT this weekend all about it! I really dig it! I will send you picks when I do!! Thank you so much for the info! I love to learn new things! My daughter is Bipolar, I think this will be so good for her!!
Wonderful! I’m looking forward to your pics and hoping your daughter enjoys the art too.
I think the piece is strong enough without colour. I often take copies of my work and play around with options on the copies. Might be worth a try.
