Tree of Hearts
Image 101 was playing with new designs.
It was fun to draw all the little faces in image 102.
Image 103 is more practice, a very large piece with lots of detail that doesn't come across in the photo.
Image 104 is my second attempt at an underwater scene. I was especially pleased with how the turtle and jellyfish turned out, even though the detail doesn't show here.
Image 105 was a just for fun happening. Everything was a surprise and I'm especially partial to a happy sun.
Image 106 is also in Quickies.
Image 107 turned into yet another experiment. When the rainbow looked as if it would overpower the heart tree, I decided to try colored pencil to help the tree stand out. Then, the leaves screamed for color, and so forth. I drew the border first just for fun, then doodled my way through the picture, having no idea what to draw. But then, isn't that what doodling is all about?
With Image 108 I started with the outer circle, added the fuchsia plant and then was stumped for a while. Next I added the inner circle, then the border design, and last the rolling hills.
Image 108-B I added a few buds, deepened the color, and added color to the border.
In Image 109, Dapper Duck is sitting patiently waiting for his lady love.
With Image 110 I wanted to try my hand with a paisley design.
Image 111 is a new experiment. The blue background is a Derwent watercolor pencil applied to the paper, then lightly brushed with water. For paper I used the normal Bristol which isn't made for water so it buckled and was annoying to work with. Also found a couple of stencils I hadn't seen before so had fun trying them out.
Look for some different kinds of doodling in the near future as I continue experimenting with various mediums.
Image 112 is included in Quickies. It's drawn with oil pastel on black card stock.
Image 113, simple as it may appear, got my creative juices flowing. The doodle was done with a long brass shaving from one of my husband's machining projects, and glued with rubber cement to black cardstock.
I purchased a gold gel pen to doodle within the doodle, but after I started I changed my mind and just left it. Sometimes simplicity is more.
Image 114 turned out completely different from what I'd imagined. But, what is new!
Image 115 was drawn using stencils. I have no problem using helpful tools. The drawings still remain doodles because I have no idea what I'm going to do next. It's fun.
Image 116 was drawn to unwind after a hectic day. The owl was stenciled in at the last minute. Is he the pilot of a strange craft?
Image 117 was outlined with my new ellipses stencil. Then I had to fill it in--one line at a time.
Image 118 only took about an hour. Just wanted to try something different.
With Image 119 I tried something different and started the pen stroke in the middle and this drawing emerged.
Started with the center in Image 120, then drew the hearts around as I went.
