Doodling along a river

Doodles on a photo background

Doodling is a relaxing and fun creative exercise which can be enjoyed by anybody. It is not about creating beautiful art or meaningful designs. It is an impulsive and playful artistic activity that doesn't have to lead anywhere specific.

The joy is in the process

Often I like to use one of my photos as a background for my doodles. I use an ipad and a pencil to draw whatever comes to mind over my photograph, creating whimsical little scenes.

A family photo

Is this just another row of buildings along a river, or is it a happy family photo!

A photo of a row of buildings along a river is transformed into a whimsical scene by adding doodles. A family photo.
