Doodles

I haven’t been very productive with creating art lately. I blame it on my mountain bike and watching too many videos of other people making art.

I made this purple heart the other day while I was watching a movie. I had no idea what I was going to make. The first step was to just make some purple marks. I started doodling with the black marker and eventually I had this heart shape.IMG_20160821_203107

 

Here are a few new doodles on deli paper (that was printed with a gelli plate).

Blue Dogs

I’ve been experimenting with layers and mixed media lately, it’s messy and I am not sure I like the look. I had some fun over lunch the other day, getting back to basics making some blue and green dogs with Daler Rowney inks and water. I’ve included some before and after shots below, so you can see how they develop. I have so much fun making them!

I usually fill the page with dogs and then wait for them to dry so I can outline with a Uni Posca or dip pen, and of course while I am waiting for them to dry I do a whole other page in another color.

Here’s a before and after. I like the crooked bumpy dogs best, they have a lot more character when it is time to outline.

I did a whole page of light green too. Here is one little guy.

A whole page of goofy puppies! I especially like the one in the lower right.
