Playing with Kandinsky

A few weeks ago after looking at some of Kandinsky's work we started this project.  This is Sarah's painting which she chose to draw the circles and paint the outer square first, leaving the centers white.  Then Monday she started painting in all the circles in circles but as you can see her imagination and creativity took over.  Great job Sarah!

This is Jessica's painting and she decided to paint solid squares the first week and then circles on top when she came back.  When she returned I told her she could go right and paint in the circles or she could turn left and just play with the squares.  Adventurer that she is she decided to go left and fill the board with collage and pearl white paint.  Wonderful work Jessica!

More Zen Play

I started this one as a little continuous line leaf drawing, then added some fescu curlies and decided to keep it simple.

At our last Zentangle group, Virginia had a couple of pages where she had used a rubber stamp and then filled in around it with lines and zentangles.  On this one I stamped the two circle designs and then added the hand drawing around it.  It was a very fun exercise.

The idea for this one Sharla found on pinterest.  Sorry I don't have the original artist name.  It was confusing, hard to not get lost but a very fun challenge.
