I am miffed at having wasted all the lovely days we have had, in between the grotty ones, when I could have been gardening, but I have found doodling to be very therapeutic. Sadly my leg hasn't prevented me from doing housework!
I started off using just a black pen then thought it might be good to play around with colour. Most of the patterns are done freehand but I did use a ruler to create the grids, and as you can see doing the background with a fine grid has it's dangers and if you are not very careful you find that your lines have gone astray somewhere.
Most of my patterns start with randomly drawn lines to see what shapes I will come up with.
I used a ruler for these straight lines.
This one took me by surprise as it was going to be grid based and then changed it's mind!
This one makes me think of crows battling against the wind. Very fitting for today's weather which has very strong gusts which keep blowing the bins over. I'm not sure it is finished yet - I may add to it.
Luckily it isn't cold and the sun is shining.
My leg seems to be improving slightly and I have even managed to christen my garden hoe and banished few weeds this morning, after which I rewarded myself with this little posy of rescued polyanthus that the wind had blown about.
