I retrieved my tabletop drawing board from the cupboard and decided to put it to good use practising my relaxing Zentangles with pencils. They really are relaxing, I found myself completely stress-free drawing away and listening to some cheesy Smooth Radio music in the background.
At first, I found it awkward to get used to the angle of the drawing board but after a while it became easier. I used A3 copier paper – I see no point in wasting good drawing paper just for pencil exercises.
My lines are still wobbly, but I’m getting better. The black area is a disaster, I kind of got carried away with the 4B pencil.
