Video 1 - Doodle fun circle!
If you have a 11 x 14 drawing pad or 12 x 18 great! Gesso works great with regular
drawing paper. Make sure your paper is not thin. Some drawing paper tend to be thin.
I did suggest to get stonehedge or a multimedia paper 20 x 30 coldpress 140lb.
If you have any questions I'd will be happy to help. I will be posting later some character
drawing here for you to look at and enjoy!
The Oodle Doodle Fun Circle will begin September 3
Sign up for my workshop!
In this class you will learn about relaxation. You will learn to expand yourselves freely
through the process of Doodling. Creatively, Doodling is a wonderful way to help you in
your Artist’s Block. It loosens the tension and creates a positive energy flow.
Doodles express fun whimsy twirly and squiggly lines introducing all sorts of exciting quirkiness and wackiness. So when doodles connect in that way, a story connects as well and playful colors adds to the fun
Doodling is a natural skill. Do you remember when we were once kids and it was fun. When we were introduced to paper, we automatically created scribbles and doodles. We expressed ourselves in that way without trouble. It is a skill we were born with. All kids are Artists! Our minds were free of fear, self - criticism and Judgement. We had no trouble drawing and no trouble expressing.
Not only Doodling creates freedom of expression but it also creates tranquility that calms the mind. It’s a wonderful way to channel emotions more positively. And the best thing yet, you can add a whole variety of beautiful colors to your doodles. Doodles are wonderful because when you let yourself go suddenly there is a story.

Now that we have our lovely character full of quirkiness. Lets now doodle her body by creating a playful posture. Then simplify your character with funky artsy clothing. All in pencil! When I do this I think about how I want to be dressed and where my adventure will be. I think about going to India looking at beautiful fabrics and watching monkeys go by. So I dress her up in all these beautiful colors of India holding a beautiful monkey representing strength and courage.Color will be for the fourth video! The second week beginning September 10 till September 13 you will all have fun accessorizing your character and adding her clothing. Think about what she represents to you!
