And to make up for yesterday (and the fact that it’s been super simple pen doodles all week, including today since we ARE going out with friends), I did four dooodles: iced tea, a tea bag, what I think is a steeper, and a tray.
They’re all super simple and based off of this image, but I learned quite a bit from all. Of them. I worked specifically on which lines came first to avoid overlaps. This was trick on the iced tea and the tray, but with the tray something just clicked. I thought I wouldn’t figure it out, and it would be all wonky, but I was able to view it in a way that made the process so simple. I felt like I had solved an optical illusion!
No, they’re nothing special, and they are more sloppy than I’d like them to be, but every doodle is a step towards understanding how the lines and proportions work and practice towards the skill of sketching. (And that’s the whole point of this venture.) I didn’t set out to show that I was — or intended to become – a great artist; I just wanted to learn a new skill.
