What is Doodle Drawing?
What is doodle drawing? Wikipedia describes doodling as: A doodle is a drawing made while a person’s attention is otherwise occupied. Doodles are simple drawings that can have concrete representational meaning or may just be abstract shapes.
Stereotypical examples of doodling are found in school notebooks, often in the margins, drawn by students daydreaming or losing interest during class. Other common examples of doodling are produced during long telephone conversations if a pen and paper are available. Most of my doodling happens during phone calls.
It’s nice to have pen or pencil and paper on hand when you have a little down time such as waiting for a doctors appointment. Create your to-do list and then doodle around your list. If you are under stress, just get out a few colored pencils and do some mindless doodling.
Popular kinds of doodles include cartoon versions of teachers or companions in a school, famous TV or comic characters, invented fictional beings, landscapes, geometric shapes, patterns and textures.
What is Decorative Drawing?
What is decorative drawing? Once you get in the groove with your doodling, you may find you design a dooding design you like. You can create all types of things from decorative drawing on plane picture frames, to doodling on your walls at home as a border.
I doodle all the time, and mine doesn’t seem to make much beauty sense, but I’m trying to enhance my learning. I’m becoming fascinated with color, and art, and the stress reduction effects. I purchased this good book about 2 years ago, and I’ve been playing and practicing, and improving. It’s called Creative Doodling & Beyond. You can find this on Amazon.com. I like this one because they allow space to practice what they have just taught.
Enjoy & Be Well!
