"tunnel 6" 5x8" watercolor moleskine journal, pitt pen (xs)
This was a fun doodle to draw. When I reached what appeared to be a stopping point, I left the drawing for a day and worked on another doodle, contemplating whether to doodle inside the paisley or leave fresh white space... ultimately I went for the doodles, leaving a little white space. My younger daughter (7) named this "Tunnel 6" for me. [Note: watercolor added a few weeks later.]
I find paisleys difficult to draw; they never quiet look like the elaborate designs I find in textiles and cultural art. The doodles radiating from the center of the paisley were inspired by Art Journal With Markers at Eden's blog.
My watercolor moleskine journal is filling up incredibly fast, the happy result of lots of sleepless nights in early January. I didn't realize it at the time, but I think I made lemonade from bitter lemons!
