I usually spend a little time unwinding just before bed, and most commonly that is with some kind of restful art activity. Lately I have been doodling. Oodles of doodles in fact. Sometimes I start with watercolor paint or marker, then go back in with a black pen, and other times – more often – I start with pen or pencil lines that I later paint in.
Looks like a mess, but is such a great technique to use as a visual expression of prayer, a stress reliever, or just some mark making play.
I usually stick with a single color scheme as this will end up collage papers or backgrounds for other artwork.
Do you doodle?
