Padoodling.

I love doodling I love painting I love padoodling! I start my padoodles with a vintage framed picture, you know the kind the landscape on a cardboard type material with no glass. I have started to look for really fancy frames and they have been abundant. I just prime the whole thing frame and all. Sometimes I use gesso but usually it is just Kiltz. Then I coat everything with a base coat of acrylic. When it is dry I whip out my ever trusty Sharpie and doodle away. The first doodle is just the basic drawing. If I am feeling a little uncertain I begin with a pencil. After the sharpie I fill the doodle in with paint. I really like the way paint overlaps the lines a little. When all the paint is dry I may go over some of the lines again or not. Then using a white gel pen and a fine tipped roller pen I finish the piece with swirls, words and lines...and walla...a padoodle is born.
