More Doodles!

I


The theme for this week's challenge at I am the Diva is to be inspired by the season. I did a tangle last week on a beautiful russet colored fall leaf. So, for this week, the nature inspired theme is more spring-like.

This is a watercolor painting dressed up with a doodle. See below for the original. It is a good thing I like doodling hundreds or even thousands of bubbles. It fit perfectly on this particular painting. It looks like the duck is swimming in a pond coated with pollen.  Actually, there is a pond outside my office that looked just like this in spring.

 I scanned the original painting and printed it on a matte photo paper. I used gel pens to draw the doodles. I was worried that I might ruin the pen tips by drawing on an inkjet image. Luckily the pens held up well.





This a scan of actual fall leaves.

  18. Thanks for sharing the before and after duck picture so we can see how big a difference your tangling makes. I like it a lot. Of course, I'm also quite fond of bubbles too. ;-)
