Day 6 of the 'Doodle-a day'

(Click on picture if you'd like to see it bigger.)
It's only a week since I started a 'Doodle-a-day' and it's had a huge influence on the way I'm working. This one started out as a random doodle on the page of a sketchbook and as I was drawing I was thinking about what I said in the post yesterday about not spending enough time on a painting or drawing. Thankyou all who contributed to yesterday's post, I so enjoyed learning how you set about making your artwork! :). I made a quick drawing of the girl, then thought I'd add another character. (Why it turned out to be a frog I'll never know!) Next came the background, something I rarely do, I think it might be a weakness of mine. It lasted longer than my usual few minutes and I found it quite relaxing and satisfying all at the same time. I'm going to do this again and try to take even longer!

Hehe...it's getting a bit like that for me! I'll post about it when I get my next feedback from the happy couple.

Jess, I think maybe you need to time yourself...not let yourself get up until you have spent the specified time doing some art! Tee Hee! This is truly wonderful...I think you might have a story going here with the frog and the girl who knows maybe the wedding might be even more inspiration for more paintings and more story.

I love this...you SHOULD do it more often!

Keep on keeping on...
