Doodles and what to do with them.
This is a page out of a sketch pad that sits in my back pack in the car. I tore it out and folded it in half to make a quick little card to go with a gift.
Drawing these crossing leaves/fronds is a beautifully mindless relaxing doodle to create. It might be obvious how this develops, but in case it isn’t – here it is, step-by-step.
I start with a line – not much thought goes into it
adding more lines whilst thinking of branches
and then joining them together – as you can see I don’t feel the need to be exact – little mistakes don’t matter
The bit I like most is drawing these wiggly fronds to go under ones already drawn.
I can drift off into a reverie whilst drawing these, so absorbing.
And then the colouring in …
and adding a few spirals and dotty flowers to the background, ready to tear out and
make another little card.
Not great art, but very enjoyable to do in odd moments.
