Doodling on Steroids

I listened to the Emergence RadioLab Podcast and doodled this drawing. This was a fun lab, as I enjoy doodling and I enjoy podcasts :) It was also nice to combine so many different drawing materials. I was pleased to discover how well pencils and chalk pastels and charcoal pencils work together. There is colored pencil and sharpie in there too.

Numbers game

I picked two numbers and the related words were Rabbit and Sunglasses. So then I got to think of a way to make that into a drawing. Sunglasses just wasn't doing it for me, so I made the sun come through the glass and my rabbit is jumping out of the way. I don't love it, but it was fun to play with watercolors.

I skipped the "drawing on steroids" lab because I'm really excited about that one, and I want to do it, but I just haven't found the right time yet. Today was not that day, but I needed a warm-up before I got down to real painting today, so I skipped ahead. :)
