I wanted to create a portrait of my husband but I wasn’t feeling confident in my portraiture abilities as I had not drawn or painted in years. Currently, my sketchbook is full of shading exercises and looks much like my high school sketchbook with shaded spheres, cubes, cones and pyramids.

Shading exercises

Instead of drawing a portrait, I created a zentangle-inspired illustration of my husband’s astrological sign, Pisces, and my sign, Scorpio.
