And The Birds Were Singing A Creative Tune…

I enjoy taking online art classes.  They help me learn about new art mediums and think outside the “Crayola” box.

I’m currently taking a class from Diane Culhane called, “Doings of a Do-o-dle.”   In a recent assignment, we grew up a doodle – meaning we took a one small doodle we created and enlarged it (3 x’s the original size) on the copy machine.

Next, we colored each copy in color pencils.  My first one I colored with gray tones (see above).

The second one in cool colors:

Doodle on Teal mat

And the third copy in warm colors:

Doodle on Orange background

It is interesting to me how all three images are the same but look totally different because of size and color.

From this class, I created one continuous doodle in a circle:

I then colored it with markers and color pencils:

Doodle story in color

I call it my story doodle.  I’m trying to create a story to go with my art!

How many birds can you find in my story doodle?

Happy Creating!

  7. Great idea to go in a circle and tell a story, Jill. I’m in the class too since I love Diane’s style and her online classes. I’m inspired to try this. Thank you for sharing, Sue
