Scribble Doodle Art

Played around tonight

I had this fun scrap page that I did scribbly doodle flowers on top of.

I didn’t want to do to much on some of the flowers. I thought the ones I left unfillled were pretty with the different colours of paint showing through and didn’t want to cover them up. 

Mushroom Doodle and Canvas Progress

Tested out a new pen tonight

It’s a constant hunt to find the perfect doodle pen. I don’t want to jinx it, but I might have found a good one. I’ll be doing a bit more testing though, to be sure. 

I didn’t do much work on the canvas tonight though. I just added another layer of molding paste for more texture. When it dries, I might add one final layer, not 100% certain yet. 

Pomegranate Doodling

Finished the page from last night today. Well, maybe I might go in and add some black ink doodling. 

Did the doodling over my lunch at the Made Local Society with an oil pen. I am now covered in white oil paint. 

Very fun but, like I said, I might still go in and add some black for contrast. We will see ūüôā

Bubbles Doodle

A very quick doodle today

Done in my little doodle book with a Bic black pen. 

366 Days of Art Doodles

I tend not to always post the doodles like today’s art. I don’t know that people would find a whole post about a doodle as interesting as one with more elements so I tend to save them up. Here are a few of the recent doodles. 

Colour Pop Canvas Materials

Oh boy. This painting is fun!

¬†I wanted to do a blue canvas. Focus on blues, greens, a mellow, calm canvas. The pop of colour was going to be from the yellow and purple in the background (and, on a side note: I’m using purple! I usually don’t because I find it almost Easter eggy in colour but look at me go, 2 days of purple!) Ha. We see how well that turned out.

¬†The flower needed a little… Oomph. Something to beef them up. It was, to be honest, plain. Boring. So I reached for the red and I’m so, so glad I did!

Materials Used:

  • 11″ x 14″ Artist’s Loft canvas
  • Golden acrylic paints: carbon black, manganese blue, teal (fluid acrylic), ultramarine violet, cadmium yellow light, cadmium red light, and light green

Do What You Love, Love What You Do

Something happened. Something inside just, clicked. All of a sudden I feel like this? This is the art in supposed to be making. It’s messy. And chaotic. But it feels so right.

¬†I can’t get over how right it feels to make this. Don’t get me wrong, I love, love, love all the art I’ve been making and will continue to make the different things I do, but this? Is where I was headed all along I think.

 Today started with a simple concept. A blue and orange canvas. Easy, lovely colour contrast. But, umm, it grew.

   Started adding more and more layers of colours, flowers, and little doodles.
  Painted the centers of the flowers white with gesso and then doodled in the centers.

¬†To say I’m happy with the past few days of art is a major understatement.

 This is my happy spot.
