... exploring in my creativity further in 2017

25 February 2011


The theme for this month's Sketchbook Challenge is OPPOSITES. This started me thinking about colour theory and colour wheels. Purple and yellow are opposite each other on the colour wheel. The yin/yang symbol  represents opposites (though I know there is much more to it than that). And I wanted to further represent opposites within each colour so I zen doodled this painted version with hard lines in purple and softer, more flowing lines in yellow/gold.

I wish the scan beds of these printers were just a bit larger or maybe I just need a bit smaller sketchbook to prevent the shading and buckling here! 

Are you participating in the Sketchbook Challenge? 


  1. What a wonderful idea! I LOVE your yin and yang symbol, the colours look fantastic especially with your zen doodles. Just brilliant!
    I've joined in the colour challenge too and found it hard to settle on the two complimentary colours I liked...ended up slightly stretching the boundaries but still using colours I'd never normally use together...definitely a challenge! :)

  2. I love all of the intricate details you have going on :)


  3. I love your zen doodles and the colors work so well together of course! :-)

  4. Great zentangle, using opposite colors is always visually appealing to me. I just finished up a page in oranges and purples.

  5. LOVe this one. Fun spring like colors, too!


Looking forward to hearing from you!
