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:
And the third copy in warm colors:
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:
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?
