Random Doodles

Not much going on here lately….I’ve been out and about!

But…I always get a little antsy….I like need to do something with my hands!  (just the way I’m wired)

So here’s a little fun, colorful doodle I did…while…..waiting at the airport…..flying in the air…..with my morning coffee…..and traveling by car.  I wish I could figure out a way to tone done the road turbulence and the air turbulence….Even better,  if I had a trick to draw in spite of it. 

A couple years ago I bought this small moleskine.  I was Christmas shopping on-line and I was hit up by amazon.com.  Only after I clicked BUY at an incredibly low price did I realize I just became the proud owner of this small 3.5 by 5.5 inch watercolor moleskine.  I was a bit bummed cuz my “good deal” wasn’t really a good deal after all..  But now, I kinda like it.  It’s quite handy when I’m “out" .... and about.

Your doodles are delightful and I love the colors you have used. Is that watercolor or pencils?

Thanks, you guys always say the nicest things :D

@Susan- The flowers blue and pink were done in watercolor pencil...love it for the variation in color tone. Everything else in markers :D

Like you, I need to do something while I travel, not so good at waiting if I don't have something to draw or read. On planes, I find that I have to work in a looser style so I don't get frustrated - and in cars I can't work at all! I like the mix of watercolor pencil and marker in your doodles!

About Me

My photo
By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser!
