Coloring Old Doodles

A while ago I started an Iris state flower doodle that derailed me for at least a few months. Once I discovered that I didn’t need to finish coloring every single drawing I did, I was liberated to draw more! The result was a whole bunch of doodle outlines. Sometimes, I go back now and color in these drawings. There are still about six line drawings in my sketchbook, but These are the ones I have completed so far:

 

Arrows and Sky

I really, really like this color combination. I think I’ll find another place to use it later on in my doodling journey.

 

Arrows are cool, especially when they are like an octopus.

Psychedelic Seventies Swirl

Since I did not live through the seventies, I can look back on them with a scene of Romanticism…or something. I was trying to get a galaxy spiral feel when drawing this, but it ended up more like a acid trip, or what a Mormon imagines an acid trip to be like.

Orange and green automatically mean the seventies. Right?

Botanical Garden Pond

The last colored drawing was drawn during church (Which I’ve discovered is the very best way to pay attention to the talk. Seems counter intuitive, but since drawing these doodles is somewhat brainless, I can listen to the speaker without fidgeting). I had just gone to the Denver Botanical Gardens with my Mom and sisters Alicia and Tobi. There’s some busy lily pads and a sweet, sweet carp.

Best. Fish. Evarrr.

On a side note, I colored the garden doodle while watching old boxing matches on HBO X Box. Which is maybe why it feels likes it’s going to punch you in the face!
