Daily Doodle for 11-19-20

I call this one “A Very COVID Thanksgiving”. I guess I’ve made a political cartoon. This is an image in my head this holiday season. I truly hope people don’t gather outside of their immediate household, or their “quarantine pod” for Thanksgiving this year, because of the INCREDIBLY HIGH INCREASE IN COVID CASES EVERYWHERE. JustContinue reading “Daily Doodle for 11-19-20”

Daily Doodle for 11-10-20

I call this one “Technicolor Flower”. Created in Adobe Fresco, this flower uses oil and water color brushes in various layers, as well as masking. There is also some layer blending going on. There is something truly soothing to me about creating textures. And flowers. Creating flowers is one of the most focused and freeingContinue reading “Daily Doodle for 11-10-20”

Daily Doodle for 10/22/20

I am in a Halloween mood. I call this one “Harvest Moon”. I used Adobe Fresco and learned how to use the shape, select and mask features more effectively. I really enjoyed learning those tools. They are very helpful. I used primarily the oil brushes, and a few watercolor brushes. I am definitely getting moreContinue reading “Daily Doodle for 10/22/20”

Daily Doodle for 10/21/20

So it’s been a while! I’ve been overloaded with homework, work and backyard work and left my Daily Doodles in the dust! But here I am.

I am only here to create.Continue reading “Daily Doodle for 9/17/20”

Daily Doodle for 8/13/20

I call this one Ascension. It’s an image that came to me. I pictured a woman rising through dimensions of color, space and time to higher and higher levels of… existence, consciousness, vibrations, or – fill in your meaning here -. This was done in Adobe Fresco. Again I really enjoy the many brushes andContinue reading “Daily Doodle for 8/13/20”

Daily Doodle for 8/12/20

Today I made something similar to a mandala – a tile pattern! I did this in Adobe Illustrator instead of Adobe Fresco this time so that I could manipulate the shapes and their alignment better. I could also revisit this file and keeping all the shapes in place, I could change the colors and strokesContinue reading “Daily Doodle for 8/12/20”
