…more doodles…

I have been busy working in the yard…so…that means very little art work+ very little time online.  I do try and stay ahead of the email.  Hubby and I just got back from taking our  items to the recycle truck that comes to town every Wednesday.  We have stepped up our efforts to keep our junk out of the landfill. 

The last two evenings I drew and doodled in my old book.  I thought I’d show you the latest ones since I don’t have anything else to post right now.  I used a Sharpie fine point marker on most of them but I also used a Pilot G-2 bold gel pen. You can see the difference in the lines.

    These look great! So, they are all together in one book? How amazing that will look when you are all finished and it it filled with these wonderful faces and other drawings!!

    Very cool, Mary!
    I’ve been meaning to ask you, do your images ‘appear’ in your mind’s eye before you begin, or do you generally ‘react’ to a piece as you create it?! Or maybe a little of both?!

      Andria…so far, I have kept them in the book. I will probably tear some out and use them for journal pages 🙂

      Inky…I guess you’d call it reacting to the piece. I have nothing specific in mind when I start, not even if it’s going to be a face or something else. 🙂

        Interesting! Your process sounds much like my wife’s… she is much better able to react on the fly… I tend to do much more planning, etc. Anyway, I envy that gift. I think the freedom in that shows up in your work, too!

    Mary, these are wonderful! I love how spontaneous you are with your drawings. The one with out-stretched arms is my favorite…she looks so happy and full of life.

      That one with the outstretched arms was originally going to be a tree 😀
