Sunday doodling...

Yesterday afternoon, I decided to watch all of the 2009 Nora Roberts movies on Lifetime...and by the time the last one came on, I was getting sleepy. To stay awake, I knew I had to do something...so I grabbed my small Moleskine and my 001 ink pen and started doodling...not even sure what the end results would be. I looked up and saw one of my watercolors laying there...and I started drawing leaves...so I kept on...until the entire page was filled. I still had a little bit of time left before the movie was over...so I began filling in around the leaves...trying to add a bit of contrast. Here's the results of my doodling last night.

Nice doodle. And I really like the painting below. I have a huge flower garden but it still isnt very warm here yet but spring will eventually get here.

Great drawing! I have been watching the NR movies myself. I plan on catching up on the the last two this week on my computer. I really liked Midnight Bayou.

wonderful sketches!!

How do you watch the movies an' sketch at the same time...I try to watch baseball & sketch at the same time, but I start yelling at the umpires too much, an' smear my pencil lines...sigh...

Well...Lady Tulip...you see it was only a doodle...not much thinking involved...lol If I was really engrossed in the movie or whatever else I was watching, there's no way I could draw...'cause when I draw, my mind is totally absorbed in my drawing and everything else is blotted out. I never even hear anyone talking to me.

Wow! That looks as if it must have taken hours!

Actually...I did this in the small Moleskine...3-1/2 x 5...so it wasn't too large.

I'm liking the contrast. Theres an artsy word for filling in the background (at least in water color) but I'm drawing a blank right now.

hmmm... Nora Roberts, huh? *coughs, hacks, chokes, coughs again, and dies... of NR poisoning* lol. Just kidding.

Anyway, this is really cool for being an inter-movie-dootle! I love the contrast between the white leaves and the shaded negative space. I also like how some of the leaves are detailed while others are just white space. It really makes it pop!

Beautiful, again. :)
