Do you go through phases of drawing and doodling a lot, then other times almost forget you even have a sketchbook? I'm like an addict with mine, once I start, I keep on wanting to do more and more hence the last post, this one
and no doubt a few more after this one!
Often I just doodle and see what comes out of the tip of my brush or pen. I like to try different medium, for instance the one above is a mixture of fibre tip pens and brush pens with a touch of watercolour too.
Sometimes I create a random image just to try out a particular colour combination. This one above has sepia ink in the background and I discovered that the blues and pinks shine out much more than they would have done leaving the background plain, don't you think?
Sometimes my emotions at the time of drawing are there to be seen very clearly. (I added the writing after I'd finished the doodle, my arms aren't actually long you know!)
Perhaps my head was in a spin when I drew this one?!
Very occasionally I'll copy another illustrator that I like. It's a great way to learn different techniques, although having said that, these days when I do copy, I tend to do it in my own style.
The lady on the left is entirely made up but the one on the right was inspired by the dolls I've seen on Pinterest.
Can I say hello and thankyou to new followers! I'm so honoured to have you here reading my little old blog. This is a great community and one that has saved me in many ways and I do hope you enjoy your time here. :)
I shall be posting more doodly drawings very soon!
