Doodles...

I love doodling faces and I sketch and doodle a lot, especially before I go to bed - when everyone is safely in bed....and the house has suddenly become calm!)

I was looking at some girls faces I'd doodled a while back using shapes and being inspired by a back grounds book I bought from The Dover Book Shop, which has some fantastic copyright free reference books. I decided to get my coloured pencils and trace pad out and work on these doodles further, experiment with colour and develop them for screen printing next month. So here are a few...


What do you think?

I think if I limit the colours to 2 to 3 and use the textures in the back ground book they will look good as screen prints....even fabric art with felt and thick black/blue embroidery thread.

I'd be really interested in what you think, and I'll show the results next month when I get into the screen printing studio....weather permitting!
