Doodling Over Watercolor
Do you doodle? We are discussing doodling. Perhaps one of the simplest art forms, doodling simply refers to drawing ‘absent-minded,’ or without planning or overly thinking it. I don’t know about you, but I’ve been doodling ever since I was a small child, and still enjoy it.
Working with the branches and leaves that we previously painted, we will use gel pens to doodle on and around them. First we are outlining the leaves, drawing very freely and loosely. Next I’m wanting to create something nice out of an accidental ‘blob’ that you see. Outlining and adding some dots improves it quite a bit. Now we add some lines on leaves to create veins. More dots, outlines, swirls, a heart or two…you get the picture. Think whimsical and fanciful. Whatever comes to your mind at the moment makes for lots of fun!
I have always been a bit intimidated by artists who are adept at watercoloring, but finally realized not to worry what anyone else is doing because it is not a competition, and I should be satisfied with my own results. Now I’m having fun with it, and my Granddaughter has found that she loves watercoloring as well, which makes me especially happy. She played with our dip dot flowers and made some scribbles that I think turned out so cute!
Go ahead and gesso the next spread in your book to prepare for our upcoming project. We will play more with watercolors as move forward. I want to personally learn and become more comfortable doing watercolors with you, so let’s practice, learn, and have fun together! Keep on practicing, spread your contagious creativity, and pass it own! Twenty minutes per day in 2020 is my motto. Thanks again for participating and see you next time!
