Funsson Lesson #2, Practice-Doodle Doo

Now that you’ve gotten rid of your inner critic here’s an easy and fun drawing exercise that you can practice-doodle.

What’s a practice-doodle.  It’s simply drawing over and over, variations of the same basic shapes while you are talking on the phone, watching TV, taking a bath, waiting at a doctor’s appointment or on a boring date!

Materials:  napkin, scrap paper, junk mail, old envelopes – anything that has no value.  You want to have the freedom to doodle and experiment.

(I have several really lovely journal books, sketch books and expensive drawing paper that I’ve not touched in (I hate to admit this) YEARS.  Why?  They are “too good” to mess up.  I only want to use them when I’m an excellent artist and my drawings are worthy of being displayed in a famous museum.  But I have a picture I did on a brown paper bag that I liked so much I framed it.)


Draw circles and rectangles and triangles and sticks.

DOODLE on, over, under and around.

put a smile on your face

and feel your stress begin to drift away
