About: I am an artist living and teaching ART in NYC for over 30 years, and I am a CZT, Certified Zentangle Teacher. I love to explore all sorts of art making both in my teaching and in my own work...check out my sit…

This is a large 20"x24" Sakura ink drawing I did on Arches paper. The detail on the fish was created using Zentangle. When the drawing was finished I painted my summer fishes using Grumbacher watercolors.

    I did the drawing first of the fish on a large piece of arches paper, then just painted with watercolors. take a look at my newest Intractable in the hot glue gun challenge. It includes watercolors as well.

    > Creativeman...The Zentangle Method is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns.

    Here are a few drawings in B&W before the painting. These are really considered ZIA's (Zentangle inspired art)
