I was looking for ways on how to draw for beginners in Pinterest when, I stumbled upon Zentangle. It’s a free form kind of doodle. Where any shapes and lines can be incorporated to form a beautiful abstract art. I like it because, it soothed my mind. I feel relaxed afterwards. Seriously!
I would recommend especially if you have short attention span (like me), to do this in small series. Like in one whole sheet of sketch paper, draw in small square/tiles (or circles) measuring 1×1 inches – 4x4inches (whichever size you like, it’s your own call). The one pictured above made me a little giddy because, I want it finished right away but I got a whole page to fill. It was pretty overwhelming as a beginner. It taught me a lesson to not be too ambitious and should’ve started small. Thus, the next zentangle projects are done in small batches.

What do you to de-stress when you’re at home? I would love to hear about it.
