More Pattern Collecting

I was so impressed by the amount of doodle inspiration on Pinterest that I set up an account and started my own board.

I’m working on a large doodle at the moment but it’s taking a long time to finish.Β  In the meantime, here are some more patterns that I collected from Pinterest, and some that evolved on the page.

  1. The more I look — the more images pop out at me: little girl monster, winking eye, snake, space capsule, crooked stack of books, peace sign… very fun. πŸ˜€ I can’t wait to see it finished. ❀

    • Thanks Colleen. ❀
      I hope you like the large doodle when it's finished but, unfortunately, I think I've lost some of the spontaneity. It isn't as fun as this one. I think it's because I'm more serious about it, worried about mistakes. It's something I'm going to have to work on.

  2. I understand how that can be. I used to pick my best photos for my blog. And then I started getting recognition for them and I hesitated and thought maybe I should post my second best photos and save the best to sell. I started to view my photography as a business rather than as art. AND THEN I said, “What?” “What are you thinking?” I don’t create the animal or the scenery. I view myself as a conduit for my art. So I ask you this question — if you are the conduit for your art — how can you make a mistake? Have you ever tried doing a doodle with your eyes closed and just letting the “creative juices” flow without interference? πŸ˜€ Have fun. ❀

    • The picture in this post is an example of what happens when I don’t worry about mistakes and just let my creativity flow. You described it as “fun” and that is how it feels when I’m doing it. The large doodle I’m working on is not so much fun. I will have to learn how to let that go. It’s an interesting process. πŸ™‚

  3. How come you’re doing it if it isn’t fun? πŸ˜€

    • Well, it’s still fun but the worry makes the process more bitter-sweet. Plus, the piece has a message which is a bit troublesome. I suppose the doodle in this post doesn’t make me feel vulnerable like the more serious one does. I’m sharing more of my “inner warts” in that one.
      Thanks for helping me dig into the process.

  4. Ahhh now I get it. You’re a brave woman to go to the vulnerable place — not a fun place to be — but when we go there and come out the other side — it is like Alice going through the looking glass — magic. ❀

    • Well, I’m not sure I’ll make it out the other side just yet – I’m only dipping my toe in. πŸ˜€ Blogging for me is a process of exposing my vulnerable places a little at a time. I’m not brave enough to bare all, all in one go.
      Thanks for being a companion on this interesting journey.

  5. I thought you were all ready showing a prevue of your big drawing. As this is “only” some practising, I am curious now…

    • πŸ™‚ This is just a random collection of patterns from, or inspired by, things I found on Pinterest.
      I hope you won’t be disappointed when you see the big drawing; it’s quite different from this one.

    • Thanks Gigi. πŸ˜€ I’ve still got quite a lot to do on the current drawing but I’m over the halfway mark now. If you like detail this one has bags of it. πŸ™‚

  10. Finding patterns on Pinterest and practising is a good idea. I’ve done that but I go to the internet and find patterns to work on. I’ll have to check out more Pinterest boards.
