No time for painting yesterday, so I figured I would post a doodle I did manage to find time for. I was reminded of Alphonse Mucha so I put a reference in with the circle in the background.
I actually don't doodle that often. If I am listening, without having to make eye contact or if I'm stressed out are pretty much the only times. I used to doodle when I had to talk on the phone (partly for the stress of talking on the phone) but since we are no longer tied to the wall with that springy cord, I have not needed to doodle. I do housework or something instead.
As you can see with this, my whole aim with doodling is to fill up the whole space with pattern. The face is usually just a framework for spirals of flowers and an excuse for lavish curls and shadows.
Will be painting tonight though. I'm looking forward to making more progress.
