One more socc

My husband is at a CFA 4WD course for the whole weekend, so after shopping with my girls this morning (always a traumatic experience - I hate clothes shopping - though I DID get an awesome pair of blue shoes!!), I have a full weekend of drawing planned! Well, that and finishing the 2 books I am in the middle of reading.

I did this one a few days ago for the challenge before being completely distracted by another pattern.

Similar type of drawing to my other challenge piece with lots of tendril action.

The socc is more filled in. Morning glories are coloured using same technique as shown in the colouring video that I posted a few days ago, though this time I used a stronger mauve/purple colour scheme - still, I couldn't resist putting in a touch of blue on them to finish them off!

This is how the drawing looks in my journal:


After scanning, I flipped it and couldn't decide which I preferred - probably how it is above, but I also like the morning glories on top. What do you think?

  1. I'm partial to the one with the morning glories at the top -- they seem to be floating upwards, rather than falling downwards.

    Thank you for the wonderful video, by the way. I watched it but failed to post a comment on that day's post =).

  5. Just gorgeous!! I love the flowy tendrils, makes the whole thing look like its about to float away. Morning glory up gets my vote too! Aliyaran

  7. I vote on top! Beautiful either way!! The socc looks like a sort of nest or bed the morning glories have rooted and sprouted from! Ooo! And I managed to play a little with my aquamarkers and tombows--the tombows actually blended better for me, though I switched to a water brush rather than the blender pen which seemed to eat up my paper. Going to try a heavier weight watercolor paper, um, soon...I hope!! Oh, and in case you don't get the response from my blog on your post, the book One Zentangle a Day is SO much fun!! And TONS of patterns that aren't online...you'll love it if you don't have it!

    1. Thanks, Dawn. I found it hard to blend the aquamarkers with the blender pen that comes with them - same problem with it tearing up the paper - I think they are really designed to blend much better with water. Will have to check out that book :)

  10. Like Efie, I saw a peacock in the first. I prefer the flowers up.

  11. Think they both are great. After reading about it can see the peacock but I think I prefer the second one. My first thought when I saw it was that Socc was a basket with holding the flowers.

  12. Beautiful!... I like the flowers up, but I like the way the lines flow through SOCC in the first one better.

  13. Thanks, all! It's funny how I didn't see any of those things (peacock/baloon) until others pointed it out - so focussed on my own vision!
