I follow a blog called The Sketchbook Challenge and love the encouragement and sense of community I see there. This week, they posted a prompt called "doodling" which is a way to loosen up and practice art without getting all uptight and frenzied about the outcome. The goal is just to doodle, set aside a few minutes and just let your fingers go.
I have a small art journal, and some pigment pens of different sizes, and sat while watching television the other night and just doodled. These are the results, and I had fun and relaxed with it. It also gets the ideas flowing in my head. I encourage you all to give it a try. You don't have to have a special art journal or pens, anything works. Try it and let me know how it goes...
And yes, anyone can doodle, just like anyone can paint...honestly. :D
