I have an old scrap of a drawing book I keep at the office for long boring meetings. This doodle took a few different meetings and a G2 black ballpoint pen .05 by Pilot.   I am not sure what I could do to improve this doodle but if you all see anything really off, let me know.  I traced some of the big tree and the bridge to get the perspective right. I am not sure if cross hatching was the best way to show the wood on the bridge?

Byrce,

I really think you did a beautiful job on this.  The only thing I can see that needs tweaking are the tops sides of the rails closest to the foreground.  They just need to be shaded more.

I think the cross hatching looks fine.  I never think to use it.  Maybe because I had such a hard time with it when I was learning to use it.

Great way to multi-task at a meeting.

Good eye, Mea. I am not sure how to get the value right now that I went so dark on the posts. Should I xhatch, stipple, color solid, use a smaller pen? It's beyond me.

Bryce,

It passed muster with Dennis, so I wouldn't do much more than add some smudgy darker value over those diagonals that you have there now, having the darkest at the ends.  Guess it would be the equivalent of a darker wash in watercolor.

Whatever, it's great!

I can't believe you can create this during a boring meeting, Bryce!! Makes me wonder what you can do when all you're focusing on is the art. Bravo!!
Cheers,
Sharon

The great thing about A-D-D Sacgal/Sharon, is that I can find time any where or when to do art.  The bad thing about A-D-D is every one wonders what I can do when I am "all focusing etc"......  I wounder too!  :yippee: :yippee: :yippee: :painting: :fight:


There is a good book out there I was told to read called "Driven to Distraction."  When I am less distracted in life I might have time to read it.

Unbelievably outstanding doodling!  My doodles are scratchy and nonsensical!  Hope you didn't miss anything of consequence in your meeting!  :2funny:

I have yet to miss a meeting at the bank that after 26 years was not a repeat. Blah, Blah, Blah....... :yippee:


Peat and repeat were in a boat. Pete fell out... Who was left?

Just before I dozed off in the middle of a meeting where we were learning about internal codes the bank is revising on credit card transactions, I was inspired to draw a machine that will provide the answers to all of life's questions. I came up with this proto type. I am not sure what goes in the top to fuel the machine but we could always try carrots. Don't carrots help with vision?

The previous post made me realize I could escape time and reality at work by just using my imagination and a small 0.1 Isomars technoart pen I picked up a few weeks ago.  A bit messy when shaken too hard but that is why I wear black now days.  :guns:
