In black and white, D is for DOODLING

I have always doodled. Filled the borders of pages with lines, circles and doodles with no rhyme or reason. Yet doodling is now becoming accepted as an art form in itself. Art Journalling includes pages of doodles. Predominantly black and white, but also including colour. I started a journal last year with doodles. Just to fill the page. What I found is that it is incredibly relaxing. Rewarding also. But surprisingly interesting.

    • Traci Bautista published ‘Doodles Unleashed’ about doodling and art journalling. I have read a number of art journalling books incorporating doodling into their pages. I had to google Beardsley and re-discovered his incredible art nouveau work. I’d forgotten the art nouveau era which I have always loved. Didn’t initially link doodling with this style. Yet when I saw the illuminated page styles, it reminded me of medieval illumination. Another fave. Now I realise that hmmm doodling has been accepted as art for thousands of years. I have always love pen and ink. Thankyou so much for the comment. It’s reminded me of so much I’d forgotten and not connected :) and given me some additional ideas to doodle and play with :) not to mention ideas for a blog lol. Now to go dig out my books on art nouveau and illumination that are tucked away somewhere in boxes :p
