I completed this doodle painting recently:
It sings of happiness to me! So I decided to include some of my favorite happiness quotes to go with my progress photos.
Each day comes bearing its own gifts. Untie the ribbons. – Ruth Ann Schabacker
I started my painting on a 12 x 16 inch canvas that I painted yellow. I then divided the canvas into squares and started doodling in each square with paint and a brush:
Act as if you were already happy, and that will tend to make you happy. – Dale Carnegie
Next, I added Golden Fluid Acrylic Paint mixed with Liquitex Gloss Medium:
If you obey all the rules – you miss all the fun. – Katharine Hepburn
I added more colors and several more layers of paint:
Take time every day to do something silly. – Philipa Walker
I was done with the painting but it didn’t feel complete.
Wear a smile and have friends; wear a scowl and have wrinkles. – George Elliot
So I outlined my doodle with a Zig Writer black pen. Now it feels complete!
Friends are the sunshine of life. – John Hay
Happy Painting! 🙂
