Playing with ink pen

Lately I’ve been in the mood again to play with my ink pens.
It is so nice to write an draw and play with ink droplets 🙂

Those are my sunny days sketches (and some dresses first try)

Keep Inspired!

Doodling around

Just practicing some doodling…
Nicest way to relax! 🙂

Practice (warm/cool challenge)

image

image

Hello!

Here I am again practicing Mandalas with my flowers…
And since the March challenge of the Sketchbook Challenge was about warm and cool colors… (see here)

Unfortunately when I was practicing I didn’t have my full rainbow with me… So I was a bit stuck on those two colors…
But you know what? I liked!
(plus it reminded me of the challenge and the color chart I read about at the bluefire jellyfish magazine

I will keep practicing and trying up with the color chart and share later on with you guys!

Keep Inspired!
Keep Creative
and mostly Keep Practicing!

Feathers, Leaves and Flowers

Feathers Leaves Flowers

Leave details

Hey lovelies!

So after my inspiration and creation drawing from last week I started on a flowing with flowers!

And I am really on a nesting mood too… So I’ve added some feathers to it… Guess is is the cold weather and a seasoning calling family close by 🙂

image

And since Christmas is close by… Why not some Christmas decor along!? 😉

image

I had lots of fun doing those!
Hope you enjoy it!

Keep Inspired!

Desde a semana passada, depois da inspiração e a criação que eu estou na onda das flores!
E junta esse frio e o Natal chegando, vontade de estar em família, de ninho aconchegante…
Bom, resolvi fazer minhas flores em um ninho de penas e folhas agradável! 🙂
E até adicionar umas bolinhas de Natal 😉
Pq não?!

Tudo pela inspiração!
Tudo pela criatividade!

doodling away

image

I am so obsessed with spirals and leaves lately… Even more than flowers, which is my safe to go ground…

Guess is fall weather creeping is way in my life… 😉
—-

Ultimamente eu estou meio que obcecada por espirais e folhas… Não flores, que é o meu ponto seguro, folhas…

Acho que deve ser o outono entrando devagarzinho na minha vida… 😉

Keep doodling, Keep Inspired!

Working on patterns

Hello my lovelies! / Olá meus queridos!

image

As you know, my trade mark are my arabesque, waves and flowers and leaves… So I’ve decided to work on them and learn how to make patterns…

image

Como vcs sabem, minha marca registrada são os arabescos, ondas e flores e folhas… Então eu resolvi trabalhar um pouquinho neles e tentar formar padrões.

image

I have a new book on zentangle, which I am trying to follow… But you know… If you wanna let it flow, follow a book to the top is not the way…

image

Eu tenho um novo livro em zentangle, que eu estou tentando experimentar… Mas como no momento eu só queria ver fluir… Seguir passo a passo não foi a minha opção

image

And then, here I am again drawing mandalas with my patterns… I am quite proud of this one btw… 🙂

image

E então, eu acabei trabalhando em mandalas ao invés…
E eu gostei muito do resultado desse aqui! 🙂

Let it flow to Keep Inspired! 😉

So, is anyone here into zentangle or mandalas? I would like to trade some ideas… 🙂

Waves

image

image

The reason I am on a roll lately is that, besides inspiration and a full stack of supply gift from sis, my hubby gave me a little table easel!

I am so happy with it!
It was a total bliss to just sit relax and let it flow! (and then later play with how to better expose it here)

Guess my next step should be working really good on pictures instead of just phone-cam registering them 😉
Anyhow, the work here is in waves… Every time I start doodling my arabesque I feel like drawing waves on a lake after someone threw in a stone or so… So I start the lines and keep on going. Here I tried to give in to colored  bubbles, but my next step is to learn how to give perspective and motion….

Do you like it?

image

A razão da minha fonte  de inspiração ultimamente não é só o fato de minha cunhada ter me abastecido com vários pincéis e papéis e coisa e tal, mas principalmente o fato do maridão ter me dado um cavalete de mesa!

É simplesmente uma delícia sentar e deixar a imaginação voar no papel a sua frente!

Aqui eu estou começando um estudo em ondas… Toda vez que eu começo a rabiscar meus arabescos eu tenho essa sensação de gotas ou pedrinhas se do jogadas na superfície de um lago e formando ondas. Então eu comecei a desenhar as linhas e usei as cores para preencher bolhinhas.
Meu próximo passo é  aprender a expressar perspectiva é movimento.

Vcs gostaram?

Keep Inspired!

Water Color

image

Sometime ago my husband gave me a set of watercolor pencils, but I never really used them much.. Till last week.

I was on a roll and spent most of the afternoon drawing and painting with them! (thanks sis, for the new brushes!)

Now I am working on a new signature flower. What you think?

Keep Inspired!

Há algum tempo atrás meu marido me deu um conjunto de aquarela… Eu nunca usei muito, até  a semana passada. Passei uma tarde inteira desenhando e pintando com meus lápis (e meus pincéis novos, presente da cunhadinha)

Agora, como vcs podem ver, estou trabalhando em uma nova flor. O que vcs acham?

Hello!

I am having trouble setting time aside to work on my drawings… (one would think that with extra “free” time, one would have FREE time… it doesn’t exactly work like that…)

Anyway… 😉 yesterday I made some time to do some new drawings (not the collage yet) and change the frames in the living room

Now I am working on feathers and dreamcatchers… Did I share my other dreamcatcher sketchs with you already? If not, I will soon. Althouh is still a work in progress… what I most liked was the flower… My sgnature mark…

After I am done with dreamcatchers I am moving on to spider webs! I don’t really like spiders… but they do do some very nice webs 😛

See you soon!

A.
