I Finished It....

I hope everyone had a good Mother's Day. Mine was perfect! HB always pampers me and even more so on special occasions....he's definitely a "keeper!"

*********************************************

I finished the doodle art I was working on so here is the finished piece....



This is done on 9" x 12" regular old sketch paper but due to the size I had to take a photo of it rather than scan it. I used mostly Prismacolor colored pencils but there are a few of the tiny circles where I used fine point Sharpie markers. I'm pleased with the way it turned out. It makes me smile. I'm really enjoying Traci's class (the button is over there on my sidebar under Traci Bautista.) Doodles are something I can do without too much thought. My hand seems to like long swooping lines and swirls and circles.

You can see a continuation of that in some of my older drawings here and here and here. I've been drawing these shapes and lines for a long time!

And here's something I just started on....



Not sure I'm completely liking this one but I'll add some color and more lines and see where it takes me.

Have fun today! Smile and think happy thoughts!

  4. Hi Janet. The end result from your start is so pretty. Love the color palet you chose. The new one reminds me of daisies. I vote of yellows and oranges.

    Yep, you can sure do the jewel tones that I struggle so much with! They look so good on your pages!!! You also have a much better knack at the flowing/circular/swooping/curves than I do......Beautiful piece!

  9. Absolutely fabulous, Janet. You have a real gift for these doodlifications. I can see them as greetings cards, wrapping paper, scrapbooking paper and maybe even silk scarves. Keep going! x

  12. I'm sorry, girlfriend, that completed piece is not a doodle. It is a design worthy of using on a product!
    There are people who would pay good money for a skirt with that design on it.
    You're not a doodler. You're a designer. Say it with me...
