Doodle Days

Wow! I cannot believe I haven't posted in so long! It's been a long road back to being healthy.  I won't bore you with all of the details but after literally months of being bedridden it is a blessing to even get on the computer, let alone being able to get "arty". 
I still need to brush up on my copic skills but here's a few doodles from my sketchbook that were done mostly with ink, watercolors and prismacolor pencils. 

The last layout I did over the weekend. Notice a theme? lol!
I adore black and white checks. My kitchen floor is black and white checks and has been for as long as I can remember. The other two layouts evolved over quite some time. I love having a page I can just turn to and doodle to my hearts content when passing time. It's a great way to wile away the time in doctors waiting rooms! I lay down all the color first with washes of watercolor paints and pencils. Then all I need to bring with me are my journal, black sharpie and a white gel pen.  When I am all done with the doodling I accentuate color in some areas with my prismacolor pencils and OMS. 

I hope all is well with you and I appreciate all of you that have continued to visit my blog or taken the time to email!
