Paint Party Friday - Daily Doodle #6

It's been quite a productive week. I've managed to keep on track with my daily doodle challenge, and I feel quite positive about the weeks to come.  I also think setting myself this goal will improve my drawing skills substantially.

I do love drawing. I prefer drawing to painting. I find the thrill of putting pen to paper exhilarating and enthralling.  

Well, anyway, below is my latest doodle. I was feeling a bit bored when I done this and just started putting lines on the paper. I quite like it.  

It sometimes surprise me what happens when one just puts lines on paper without any thought for the finished result. It's quite meditative and the results are quite often an unexpected pleasure. 



I also managed to draw-up a couple of pages for my colouring book, which I hope to publish later this year and I've decided to show one of them, too. 



Have a great PPF and have a wonderful weekend.

  12. How fun you just started this by putting lines on paper. It's looking very complicated. And beautiful. It's a long time since I doodled, but I remember how meditative it was. Great work for your colouring book too!

    1. Hi, Courtney. Thank you for dropping by and for commenting. Drawing is a great way to relax. Some folk reckon I'm way too relaxed, but I like being laid back. I think doing so much drawing makes me more chilled.
