Painting Doodles

This post is about my paintings about doodles using acrylics on wooden boards and on canvases.

I start by making a scribble using a color pencil onto the board or canvas. Then I paint in the shapes. I let each layer dry before adding the next shapes and details. The final painting element on the board or canvas is the small dots.

Patience and time is essential with this painting. I never really know how it will turn out, but it is always a delightful surprise.

Once the painting is completed I will turn it on each side to decide how to hang it. I also look to see if there is a symbol that appears. I usually get animals in my doodle/scribble paintings.

Here are 2 paintings that I want to share with you.
