  •   sandieloves2art Love your mandalas... But this just warms my butter 4d
  •   emilylagore @sandieloves2art thanks Sandie . I am having fun with it - paisley curves have always intimidated me but the colouring book practice has me motivated to master new subjects 4d
  •   parabolicmuse I was inspired by you to play with Paisley so I did that latest drawing and it was fun but not 4d
  •   parabolicmuse Not as flourishy as Id like. I'll be doing more. This work of yours is more like it!! 4d
  •   tesswyatt Gorgeous 4d

emilylagore When drawing curves - I find it helpful to use the side of my hand -at the little finger knuckle - as a pivot. The knuckle against the substrate helps keep my hand grounded and in turn helps keep the curve even and steady. At the beginning of the vid I am trying to lift my fingers so you can see that my knuckle is resting on the paper - kind of challenging to draw and video on an iPhone at the same time #tutorial #art #draw #doodle #freehand 4d

emilylagore A little different. More practice. #wip #art #draw #doodle #copicmultiliner #freehand #fabriano 5d

emilylagore Practice and more practice. Do you want to be proficient at drawing? 1. Practice. Draw the same lines over and over until it becomes comfortable and your eye/hand becomes confident. 2. Be aware of how your drawing hand is positioned - in order to draw a smooth even line you should have a clear view of the start and finish of your line to be able to complete the line successfully. 3. Train your eye and your hand to be able to gauge the length of your lines to free yourself from pencils and rulers - your lines and drawings will benefit from a more organic appearance. Have fun!! #draw #drawing #tutorial #drawingtips #art 5d

emilylagore Waiting for the first layer of @tombowusa Tombows to dry - couldn't seem to get the colour correct in the photo - the fading is more subtle than the photo shows. #wip #art #fabriano #freehand #copicmultiliner #doodle #draw 6d
  •   doodlediem FANtastic . Do you spray water of do you use a brush? And the tombow marker on top? Love the technique 6d
  •   avidreadertwo Amazing! Can't wait to see the next step!! 6d
  •   emilylagore @doodlediem thank you Pia I use Tombows on dry paper then blend gently with a wet brush - but I love the idea of spraying water on top of Tombows - going to try it!! 6d
  •   emilylagore @avidreadertwo thank you Gail 6d
  •   parabolicmuse Wow. Such a pleasure to catch up with what you've been doing. 2d
