I must say, I am sleeping well after starting this ritual at night, it is very relaxing.
I am keeping them small and doable, it doesn't take too long to do one.
|I use A4 drawing paper and can fit 12 squares quite nicely.|
Then I decided to branch out and try a variation. I got out some masking tape and traced the inside and outside of the shape, overlapping them. I was strict with myself and only did one section each day. Some sections are not very big at all and were very quick to do.
I feeling inspired by a conversation I had tonight, talking about a pizza, which is round, cut up into triangles and stored in a square box. That might be my inspiration for a new doodle. I'll have to see what develops. Maybe I should order a pizza and take a photo, just for inspiration.
I am feeling ambitious and want to try a new stop motion animation. I was inspired by seeing a post giving pictorial developments of doodling as well as a video. Why make a simple video? I ask myself. Why not make it hard and try to take a photo of each stage and then make it into a movie? I'll have to work out how to set up the camera so that it takes the image with the same lighting, make sure the paper doesn't move and it doesn't need too much editing to make the image grow smoothly. That will be a project for another day, when I am feeling a bit more energetic. Don't hold your breath waiting for this to appear.
