Weaving Doodles II

“The magician seemed to promise that something torn to bits might be mended without a seam, that what had vanished might reappear, that a scattered handful of doves or dust might be reunited by a word, that a paper rose consumed by fire could be made to bloom from a pile of ash. But everyone knew that it was only an illusion. The true magic of this broken world lay in the ability of things it contained to vanish, to become so thoroughly lost, that they might never have existed in the first place.”
Michael Chabon

5x8" moleskine, gelly rolls, slicci pens

Drew this doodle a few weeks ago and started coloring it in around Halloween. When there are so many nooks and crannies in a doodle, you just keep coloring and coloring and it seems like you are not making progress, and keep going and going and finally it starts to come together!

I drew another doodle weave several years ago, without the white space around the "fabric" and that was fun too. Here's a link to Weaving Doodles which is one of the prints available at the Daisy Yellow Etsy Shop.

My goodness, that must have taken hours and hours. And worth every minute of it!

{Tammy}: Lorinda, Thank you for stopping by! I love drawing these doodles, so it's a pleasure and relaxing!

That is the most awesome thing I have seen in a long time. You are so creative and talented and I love reading your blog.

{Tammy}: Barbara, Thank you! It was fun and a mental challenge, to be sure!

These are fabulous! I agree though that it's amazing jus how much time it takes to colour stuff in. I do a lot of line drawing / doodles that I colour in with pecils or watercolour and it just drives me crazy sometimes that it takes so long to finish what looks like a simple piece.'s worth the trouble, isn't it?

{Tammy}: Caatje, I think because I have so many things going at the same time, I don't notice how much time each page takes. But I love the detail, I get totally immersed, it's the opposite of frustrating for me.

Great doodle. I bet it was fun to color in.

{Tammy}: Kathryn, it was indeed a blast! Thank you for stopping by.

I love these! I can't even begin to imagine the patience to just DRAW these, let alone color them in. Which slicci pens did you use? I found them on Amazon and Jetpens but there are several sets and a couple of different sizes. I'm curious which ones you use. Your colors are incredibly vibrant.
Thanks for sharing these.

{Tammy}: I think that drawing actually improves my focus, my patience. I'm actually not all that patient! I am just not rushed to finish. With regards to the slicci pens, I got the full set of .25 nibs. They are very, very thin tips and so they were used on the tinier areas of the doodles.

I just finished my first weaving doodle(well, it actually turned out to be more of a grid). But, something miraculous happened by the time I was nearly finished coloring: I felt like an artist! Thank you for all of the information, encouragement and example you provide here.
