Art Therapy: zen doodle

Hi friends,

Today I am here with a new drawing pattern which deliberately creating a mood, focus, and state of mind…what ?? …Yes you heard it right. lets have a small introduction about this new art pattern.

What Are Zen-doodles?

Zen-doodling is the art of drawing designs using structured patterns.Concentrate on drawing small blocks of patterns at a time; going with the flow lets your mind get into a calming zen state.

Benefits of Zendoodling

  • Is Intuitive
  • Is Fun
  • Relaxes
  • Leads to inspiration
  • Teaches patience
  • Inspires creativity

How to Create a Zendoodle?

Follow my steps and feel free to trace my designs also.

What You’ll Need

  • Pencil
  • Felt tip pen(I prefer black gel pens)
  • Paper
  • A few basic patterns to reference

Step 1

Draw a border outlining the shape of your Zendoodle.

Step 2

Use a pen or pencil to draw strings. Strings are the lines that divide the shape into individual sections.

Choose a section to start with and fill it with a repetitive pattern. Don’t spend time planning a pattern, just draw.

We can have colorful Zendoodle also …

Once you’re a Zendoodle master, move onto more elaborate patterns and designs. Challenge yourself to get as intricate and detailed as possible, play with different pen thickness, shading styles and color combinations.

There are no limits to your imagination! Stay tuned ..!!
