I love to doodle! Usually I doodle when I'm listening intently and have a pen or pencil in my hand...on the phone, at a meeting, anywhere! My mind wanders along with the pencil and soon after beginning, an image appears. Then I let my mind continue on that path. When I doodle, I feel very relaxed and I enjoy going with the flow. Sometimes I will warm up by doodling to give myself some inspiration like with Raccoon with Hat. First I drew a continuous line...every which way, then I turned the paper around and around until an image showed itself to me and lastly I chose gouache for the color.
