Paintintg · Zentangle: Zendala

Rainy day before and afters

Today was a rainy day at the beach. Luckily, we had checked the weather before we left, and knew we might be in for a couple of bad beach days so we came prepared. On our way out the door, I grabbed my watercolors, my acrylics, some canvases, and even poor Nemo.

All the water today inspired to work on Nemo. I added some more seaweed, enlarged his Anemone, and even painted Nemi a friend. Everyone agreed that this friend was a mistake though so he got painted out.

I think this painting is almost done. Something about it still bothers me, but I don’t know what it is, so I think I will put it away for a while and see how it looks to me later. Or until someone can tell me what it needs.

After a nap, some reading, and some shopping, I was ready to do more art. This time I did some Zentangle.

I liked this Zendala, but even after I shaded it I thought it was missing something. Since my watercolors were still out after painting Nemo, I decided I would paint it too.

I don’t think it looks that bad, but Birdie thinks I ruined it. Which do you like better black-and-white or color? Do you think I ruined it?

  1. I like the fish in the first two paintings! Sorry he had to go.I like both the B & W and the painted Zen!Color changes it, but I look at them as two separate pictures, each equally good.

  2. I was looking at the black and white Zendala and thinking that is really pretty, then scrolled down and saw the painted one and thought wow, that's gorgeous!
