Mother and daughter doodles

I have just started on Amelia’s Experimental Art E-Course– fun, inspiring exploration of making art using different mediums.

Week one. Me and my daughter sit at the table together with pencils, charcoal, felt tips and crayons, our aim is to doodle, to make marks without fear of what will be produced (kids are great at this aren’t they?)

“What is doodling mummy?”.

“It’s drawing without thinking about it” I reply.

We sit together, pencil moving on the page and I pause. She looks at me. “You are thinking mummy!” she says.  “That’s not doodling, that’s boodling!”.  Ha ha! I am well and truly caught out!

I like our doodles and this simple doodling was fun and relaxing to do together. I carried on alone into the evening, colouring and adding to my doodle with a glass of wine in hand. I think I will turn my doodle into a mosaic one day…

    that would make a great mosaic someday. I have a feeling you sketch and doodle mosaic style without realizing it! and FUNNY! I had the same doodle conversation with my girls the other day. They came up with some funny comments about it, as kids will do.
