Today I’d like to share a doodle page I created over the holidays.
I was playing with the teardrop shape of the paisley and noticed that it reminded me of the shape of a bird. The materials I used were;
- Daler Rowney Sketch book
- Pens: Stablio; Point 88 (0.4 mm), Staedtler; Triplus colour 1.0mm
- Pencils: Faber-Castell; Polychromos (set of 12)
The Triplus pens were very comfortable in the hand as they are triangle section. I struggled a bit with the Polychromos as I’ve found in the past you need to press quite firmly to get good coverage, which my stiff hands didn’t like at all. This time on the DR paper they went on with very little pressure and felt quite velvety smooth. They tempted me into splurging in a set of 36 in Amazon sale.
Have a nosey round You Tube there are lots of doodling tutorials. I just used a teardrop sort of shape with a bit of a curve for my paisley shape.
Best wishes and thanks for reading, see you soon
