Coloring is harder than it looks!

I’ve discovered that I LOVE doodling. But working in black and white is quite a bit different than in color. At least in this instance.

So far, I had just colored my title (cover) doodles with colored pencils and tried one full doodle (see below). I’ve long been in love with pencils.  I  like how they can be fine point, broad point and can be shaded easily. But I decided I wanted some deeper, more intense colors — which only comes with markers.

A quick stop at Target for a beginners’ set of washable markers began my adventure in coloring. I chose one of my favorite doodles. I’ll be coloring more but definitely need a lot more colors!

Here’s my first go with markers:

Welcome to WendyDoodles

Hi! I’m Wendy. I’ve been doodling for years, usually on meeting agendas. It’s a great way to keep focused during meetings where my left brain needs to pay attention. Now, I’ve decided to channel some of that energy into adult coloring books (a nice stress reliever). Just click on the link above to find Volume 1 and Volume 2 on Amazon.

My other passion is writing, especially childrens’ stories. I’ve been writing feature articles, ads, and other business related copy for more years than I can count, but what makes me happiest is to tell stories that grade school kids can enjoy and get a little lesson about being kind, making friends, and doing what’s right. Currently you can find  The Underwater Adventures of Spox and Zola and Jane Magnolia Finds Her Forever Home for kindle or in paperback on Amazon, and the story of two bird brothers who discover that the color of ones feathers isn’t what makes them family, titled The Bird Brothers Prophesy for e-readers. (see the link above).
