Coloured Doodles

Recently I've started filling some of my journal pages with doodly drawings and then afterwards colouring them in with markers. The result makes for some very colourful pages.

It takes hours and hours of work to fill a page, but I feel it's worth it.

Hope you like them too!







Wishing you all a wonderful and artsy weekend!

  2. Your color combinations are very pleasing. Do you choose the colors ahead of time, or just pick them as you're coloring?

    1. After I finish the drawing I pick five to eight colours that I think go nicely together, all depending on my mood really. Those are the colours I then stick to for the entire drawing. I found that most colours will go together somehow if you keep repeating them.

  3. Oh gosh I LOVE these pages. Doodling really tickles my fancy ... and the colours ... oh my the colours!!! And I'm a marker junkie too. Can't get enough of 'em. These must have been a blast to create. Any idea how long each page might have taken ... ball park figure? Re: books ... I read fantasy and paranormal fiction too. I've read lots of Robin Hobb, and love Jacqueline Carey. I've read George R.R. Martin too. I've just finished rereading A Discovery of Witches and it's sequel because the third book is coming out this summer. Can't wait!
    Have a fab weekend Caatje. Cheers!

    1. The drawing takes about 30 to 60 minutes and the colouring in can take up to three or four hours. But usually I don't do them in one go. They are sometimes spread out over days with a little drawing here and a little colouring there when I feel like it. Yesterday I did one (not shown here) that took me about three hours in total. So it depends.

      Deborah Harkness' books are on my wishlist. I've never heard of Jacqueline Carey, will have to look her up. Seems like we have a similar taste though. :-)

  5. Thanks for sharing these beautiful textile design and colors. I really like it. I am also doing textile work in my free time. I have learn stitching in the ditch which is used in several different ways such as top stitching method where two pieces of fabric create a seam.

    1. Thank you Robert, but these aren't textiles, they are done on paper in a sketchbook. Would be cool as fabric though. :-)
