UNLEASHING MY INNER PICASSO!

I bought another Daily Boxed Calendar.  I decided to pass on the quilt one and settled on DOODLE A DAY...unleash your inner Picasso!
I am not much of a doodler but I thought this would be fun way to practice some of my pattern designing.  If the prompt suggests a figure or face, I am going with that.  Otherwise, I am dividing the space up and filling it with various patterns.  I am trying to remember to photograph the initial squiggle.  You will have to guess where it is in the first doodle.  The hand came out a little lame,  but the rest came out satisfactory.  This should be a fun project.

Hi Myrna, These "doodles" and pattern studies are inspiring! They look like great fun and it will be interesting to see what you do with them.

I like the progression.

This is a great way to exercise that doodle in yah...great idea!

RH Carpenter said...

Wow, your inner Picasso is working overtime :) Great "doodles" (can't really call these doodles as they are so much more finished than a quick little doodle).

The entry for Jan. 5 is by far my favorite!

Will you still alternate between different pens/brushes?

super doodles! I picked up a free day planner from the bank and decided that I never look at these. I carry them around in my purse and never use them. So in those tiny squares..I am doodling too! One a day..should be fun to see how it looks Dec. 31,2011. I am going to take it to my studio and use my acrylics on it to color up the bank name and the dull fake black leather cover. I will take pics and you can see my inner whatever!!!

This looks interesting; I'm ordering one of these doodle calendars. (I might order two, so I'll have before and after.)

Hi Peggy, I, too, am curious where this particular path will lead. I think it will be a good way to play with pattern.

Hi Harley, Thanks for the comment. Progression is the name of the game!

Myrna Wacknov said...

Hi Cynnie, Want to jump on the bandwagon? I think we all have the doodling gene.

Myrna Wacknov said...

Hi Rhonda. I guess I am attracted to complicated projects! Simple doodles are too simple! What are you going to read next? Enjoyed the synopsis of Egon Schiele.

Hi David, I like that one, too. The different line sizes are in response to the initial prompt on the page. Some are made with a fine line and some are made with a wide marker. I like the combination.

Hope you pick back up on your blog and webpage. I like what I saw there.

Hi Kay, glad you are joining the ranks of us "doodlers" Send me a photo of a completed page. Would love to see how it turns out.

Hi Hallie, We should compare notes to see what we come up with for the same prompt. I had two calendars for the self portrait series. It came in handy when i really messed up a drawing. I'm not too worried about this one. I just photograph the page first before I draw on it. If you use a different colored ink, you can identify their initial mark on the page along with what you added.

Looks like you're schooled in Zentangles.

I was actually thinking of gluing befores-and-afters in a small journal; one for each month. If anyone was interested, they could buy one by making a donation to our local SPCA or Food Bank. I think people might enjoy seeing the original mark.

Myrna Wacknov said...

Hi Kass, I am definitely a student of Zentangles, although very unofficially.

Myrna Wacknov said...

Hallie, that sounds like a great idea.

My last comment. I neglected to say how much I have enjoyed following your projects (quilt calendars, Ipad adventures, classes, etc.) during the past year or so. Your work is wonderful--and I enjoy wearing NAOT sandals.
