Q:Can you tell us a little abut yourself?
I always liked drawing, painting and art in general. When I was younger I spent a lot of time drawing, but the older I got, the less time I found for my hobby and in the end I didn’t do it at all anymore. Last year I decided that it was time to change that and I started again. I mostly did watercolor paintings, but I liked it so much I wanted to draw and paint all the time. I started taking pens and paper to university and as I obviously couldn’t bring watercolor to class, I started with the zentagle inspired doodles and mandalas. I really like listening and drawing at the same time and I feel like I even concentrate better on the lecture 😉
Sketch "Mount Cook" (NZ) Tried out something after having looked through all the beautiful entries for mountains on @the_art_competition (where you can vote for my entry, too) and especially after having seen the wonderful work of @drawntohighplaces 🙂 #watercolorlandscapepainting #watercolorart #watercolor #drawings #sketch #mountains #mountcook #art
Q:Do you use coloring as a small getaway from the real world?
Yes, I do. Now I do it to relax and whenever I’ve got time.
Q:Is coloring time-consuming? How often do you color on a weekly basis?
This depends so much on the week. Sometimes I don’t draw at all, other days I spend hours at my desk. I actually spend much more time doing the outlines than coloring (I create all designs by myself).
HAPPY EASTER! And did you hear that Instagram is going to change? So in case you don't want to miss any of my posts, turn on the notifications… I really hope my drawings will still reach all of you guys. Thanks for all the feedback, likes and nice comments! I really appreciate that! 🙂 #easter #egg #zendoodle #zentangle #mandala #drawings #doodles #adultcoloring #easteregg #zenart
Q:How do you prepare before coloring?
Usually I don’t prepare at all. When I have an idea I just grab a piece of paper and start right away, but of course there are some days I celebrate it more than others, listening to music and drinking tea while drawing.
I am really bad at making videos… Haha but here's a work in progress from today. I am thinking about giving it to some people to color and post my favourite entries (like I did with the mandala some time ago). What do you think? Would you be interested? #mandala #deer #drawing #mandlaart #zentangle #zenart #zendoodle #doodles #instaart #wip #autumn #autumnart #fall #stabilo
Q:What are your favorite supplies for coloring? Do you always use the same or you like to experiment with it?
I usually use [easyazon_link identifier=”B00ATBRJRC” locale=”US” tag=”color-planer-20-20″]Stabilo pens[/easyazon_link]and [easyazon_link identifier=”B00HH32BH8″ locale=”US” tag=”color-planer-20-20″]markers[/easyazon_link] as they proved to be my favorites 😉
Q:Do you have special techniques and color mixes that you’d like to share with us? Any tips and tricks?
I wish I had, I think I could improve a lot on blending and stuff…
Q:Do you have a specific “signature” in your art?
I do all designs I color by myself. I start with a white sheet of paper and anything you see in the end is made by me.
I didn’t use a watermark or signature until now, but sadly I have to start doing so. It happens way too frequently that people just repost my work (sometimes as their own, sometimes just without a source) and that’s really frustrating to see. I spend a lot of time on it and then people just steal it.
Q:Which books and patterns you find most enjoyable to color?
I tried coloring in an actual colorbook once but I prefer creating the whole things. I like doing mandalas and I also enjoy animal/pattern drawings like the seahorse I posted on Instagram.
Q:Do you have a favorite coloring book author? How did he/she earn your admiration?
I think the [easyazon_link identifier=”B01LY8ZMF2″ locale=”US” tag=”color-planer-20-20″]Erin Condren color book[/easyazon_link] is really cute, as it is quite different from other works I saw.
Q:And last but not least, where can we find your artwork?
Until now only on Instagram (@endofourcomfortzone). The name is a bit strange for a drawing account, but I started it thinking I would post photos of my other hobby (cycling) haha. Now I feel it’s too late for a better name.
