I’ve been spending way too much time doodling this winter. In addition to not wanting to go outside much, hubby had his knee replaced so plenty of time between nursing tasks (and household tasks he can’t do for a bit). I’m also a news junkie and with the current state of affairs, having my doodle pad in my lap helps me avoid throwing something at the TV.
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!
