Doodle drawings

I am so enjoying these big doodles that I do from time to time. They are completely abstract and have no deeper meaning whatsoever except bringing me joy and hopefully some pleasure to those who view them. I love playing with colour and patterns and thus making an attractive composition.

I think in the end that's what most of my art is about, just making something that is pleasing to my eyes and a bit of a puzzle to work out when making it. A play with shapes and colours. It must be why I love patterns so much.. They are just soothing.

Here are three abstract doodles on A4 paper that I have done recently:

I still have to smile about that last one. It's the first thing I did in my studio after I got back from my Texel vacation. Remember how I only took black pens with me on that vacation? Well, this was how I got over the lack of colour that I experienced those weeks! :-)

I really still want to make a huge doodle painting on canvas or wood at some point, but I haven't really had the chance to try it yet (or the courage?). It will come, eventually, I just know it. Give me time.

Hope you're all making art that makes you happy or doing something else that brings a smile to your face. Have a wonderful and artsy day.

PS If you want to know how these doodles come into being, I did a little step by step a while back that you can find here.


  1. The post-Texel one also made me smile. Poor thing! In general, though, I'm mostly astounded - the level of detail in these "doodles" is incredible and awe-inspiring. Love seeing your work...

  2. Wow - I love all of them but like the bottom one the best. Pretty, pretty ... pretty! :)

  3. Ze zien er geweldig mooi uit , je hebt er je werk van gemaakt en leuk die uitleg hoe je ze gerealiseerd hebt . Bedankt ! Fijne zondag !

    1. Dank je wel. Hopelijk heb je een fijn paasweekend gehad (ikke wel).


I appreciate each and every comment. They make me really happy. I don't like spammers though and that's why the word verification is turned on. I know it's a pain, but I hope you understand.

I try to respond to all comments by directly replying in the comment section, but please understand that sometimes this may take some time. Know that I read them all and that they make my day.
