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.
