As I diligently packed my bag for work the next day, I decided to throw in an small art journal and a small plastic bag with a pencil, eraser and a selection of black pens. I made up my mind to play along but without formerly signing up to the challenge.
It's Summer here (all be it a bit cool for what I would really refer to as Summer) but it's still well and truly nice enough to to head outside for lunch to enjoy the sunshine and fresh air. I am really lucky that I am working at an educational facility at the moment so there are plenty of seating, sheltered and grassed areas to sit on and around and enjoy the outside.
I had my lunch and still had some time to spare so I opened my art journal and started to doodle. By the time I finished the first page, I had made up my mind to undertake the challenge but without completing the challenge.
In coming up with a theme for my doodling I decided:
- Each day's journal would include the day number somewhere as a significant part of the doodle; and
- I would only use black pens for my doodles, of varying widths.
Here are my doodles for the first week... one per day (well two per day until I had caught up). Some were very quick, completed in less than 15 minutes (what was left of my lunch break). Others took several sittings over the course of a day or two.
Day 1 - Flower
Day 2 - Swirls
Day 3 - Geometric Patches
Day 4 - Stretched
Day 5 - Heart Pillow
Day 6 - Flames
Day 7 - Seventh Heaven
