This whimsical heart is heavily influenced by doodle patterns. In recent years, a wonderful new movement led by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas has re-vitalized doodle art through their meditative drawing method named Zentangle(R). As a huge fanatic of ornamental patterns and line art, it is a joy to see a new appreciation for this type of drawing. The line art was created in ink pen over paper, then scanned in and painted using a digital painting app.
Notice how the original was sketched reversed. In the end, I thought it looked better with the heart on the left side. What do you think?
Note: Zentagle(R) Method is a trademark of the name and the teaching method, NOT the style of drawing or the patterns, which cannot be copyrighted.
