doodle and relax
when planning to paint
lift ideas from Pinterest,
paint with abandon!
In the absence of a light box, I stuck a slice of a blood orange to my window, showing the outline of all the little segments.
And here a lemon slice, photo taken with the iPad
This was inspired by seeing Claudia Horsey’s watercolour on Pinterest.
I started copying Claudia’s design, using felt tip pens and crayons, thinking I would use the drawing to make a greetings card. I liked the effect so much, I went out and bought some citrus fruits to do a design of my own
Don’t you just love the colours…
The blood oranges left a print on the paper
which gave me an idea…..I had fun playing around ….
adding pen outlines and then shading with colouring pencils ….
which turned out to be a very relaxing way to doodle.
