As many of you know, I find doodling to be a meditative practice.
I like to draw patterns in the evening, often while my hubby is watching basketball or whatever sport is on TV. My hubby gets VERY involved with the games and often “encourages” the team and refs to play better. 😉
So I doodle away… Like this one I recently started:
And have been adding to it, a little each evening:
I was looking for inspiration for patterns and decided to look at this book I had purchased awhile back:
It has lots of creative ideas with blank pages to experiment! Super fun!
If I get stuck, I look at this book for inspiration. I usually can’t “copy” the patterns but use them as a place to start my own doodle pattern:
This doodle is approximately 5 inches wide by 5.25 inches in length. I am using a Pigma Micron pen in various sizes – primarily .01
I try to balance shapes, patterns and value in my designs. This is part of the fun! I’m still working on this doodle and will post it when I’m done! 🙂
What inspires YOU to create patterns or doodle creatively?
I hope you share it with me!
