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.

Below i am sharing few of my hand drawn zen-doodles

We can have colorful Zendoodle also …


flower and leaf zendoodle …

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 ..!!

Organic Indian Painting: Kalamkari

Kalamkari is an ancient Indian art that originated about 3000 years ago. It derives its name from Kalam meaning Pen, and Kari meaning work, literally Pen-work. The Kalamkari artist uses a bamboo or date palm stick pointed at one end with a bundle of fine hair attached to this pointed end to serve as the brush or pen.

History:

In ancient India, the art of painting using organic colors and dyes was very popular, but this style of painting originated at Kalahasti (80 miles north of Chennai) and at Masulipatnam (200 miles east of Hyderabad). The paintings then used to depict Hindu Deities and the scenes from Hindu mythology. Masulipatnam being a muslim region, the weavers were involved in the block printing art whereas the artists from Kalahasti practiced painting Hindu mythological scenes.

Organic Colors of Kalamkari

Kalamkari art primarily use earthy colors like indigo, mustard, rust, black and green. Natural dyes used to paint colors in Kalamkari art is extracted for natural sources with no use of chemicals and artificial matter. For instance, craftsmen extract black color by blending Jagger, water and iron fillings which they essentially use for outlining the sketches. While mustard or yellow is derived by boiling pomegranate peels, red hues are created from bark of madder or Algerian. Likewise, blue is obtained from indigo and green is derived by mixing yellow and blue together.

The styles of Kalamkari Paintings:

  • Masulipatnam Kalamkari:

Owing to Muslim rule in Golconda, the Masulipatnam Kalamkari was influenced by Persian motifs & designs, widely adapted to suit their taste.

  • Sri Kalahasti Style:

The Kalahasti tradition which developed in the temple region mostly concentrated on themes form Hindu mythology, epics (Ramayana, Mahabharata), images of Gods and heroes.

  • Karrupur Style:

Karrupur is a style of Kalamkari that developed in the Thanjavur region during the Maratha rule.

Here let me share a small tutorial of easy to draw Kalamkari pattern . I am going to draw a kalamkari Cow..

The Patterns : Mandala Art

Here I am back after a week gap with my new Indian art tutorial which is known as  Mandala Art .

what is Mandala ?

Mandala” is the Sanskrit word for “circle”
and is a form of art stemming from the Buddhist and Hindu traditions.

Originating of Mandala Art

Mandalas were created in the service of one of the world’s great religions, Buddhism. They were produced in Tibet, India, Nepal, China, Japan, Bhutan, and Indonesia and date from the 4th century to present. Now they are created throughout the world,
including New York City.

Purpose for creating Mandala?

Constructing a sand mandala. According to Buddhist scripture, mandalas constructed from sand transmit positive energies to the environment and to the people who view them. They are believed to effect purification and healing.

Destroying Mandala ?

When the mandala is finally finished, however long it takes for the monks to deal in this divine geometry of the heavens, they pray over it –
and then they destroy it. …

 The underlying message of the mandala ceremony
is that nothing is permanent.

Here i am sharing easy steps to draw Mandala..
