Zentangle for Beginners: Intro & Supplies!

Hello friends! Welcome to the first video in a new series on this channel! I’ve been requested to start making tutorials on how I do my zentangle/doodle artworks, so this is going to be a new recurring series in which I’ll show your how to draw some of my favorite doodle patterns, and in which situation I like to use them.

Starting with this first video! This is an introduction to Zentangle and the art of doodling. I’ll explain what it is, what your options are for tools and surfaces to do your doodling on, plus I’ll do a little demo showing how to generally begin a new Zentangle artwork.

In future videos I’ll share how to draw different patterns and where to use them, while talking about things like shading and whatnot along the way.

So I hope you’re excited for this new ongoing series! Leave me a comment below on your thoughts and what you’d like to see!

Check out my review of One Zentangle A Day in this video!
