This is a WONDERFUL doodle!

A super doodle which has become a truly beautiful piece of art!!

A brilliant doodle, Carole! Love the textures and colour used.

I’m so pleased you all like this doodle, thanks so much! I made the background with no idea in mind. Started by first spraying water then dropping in Daniel Smith lunar blue and sodalite. Added a few drops of Indian ink while wet. Dried then thought magpies! Put in some branches.

Wish I could doodle like this!


Immediately eye-catching. Nice work Carole.

……three for a wish and four for a boy, five for silver, six for gold, seven for a secret never to be told. Fabulous “doodle” Carole.

Excellent use of textures and tones, and a wonderfully dramatic result. Excellent work, Carole!
