LastMinuteLucie and the search for time

Following on from Shrinkles and diving into my February Challenge-drawing:

I doodle whenever I have a pen in my hand; spots, stripes, checks, circles, boxes. It is one thing that really helps my brain relax. Discovering mandalas was a joy.

But when I have more than a moment I doodle faces.

Mostly they are female faces, sometimes figures. I love drawing eyes.

Here are a set I doodled at work between visits and phone calls. I put out a piece of paper especially for it, to see what I could manage – would the expanse of white paper intimidate me? Would it feel too forced – would I get the same joy from it? Would it be too distracting?

I did manage it – it wasn’t as natural as usual –  and it was too distracting… :D, but I felt it was a beginning. My drawing hand is remembering how it feels to make shapes and join lines. It’s reconnecting with my eye and my brain and my imagination. I’m noticing interesting outlines, light and groupings and I can feel the need to put pen to paper returning. I’m excited.
