Jennifer Mercede – Doodle Draw Paint – Create a Large Doodled Piece
Duration of Class: One Day (6 Hours) // Medium: Drawing + Painting // Skill Level: All
Let’s get doodling! Create beautiful pieces which combine doodling and painting as only Portland, Oregon based artist, Jennifer Mercede can inspire you to do! In this class we’ll enjoy playing with color, mark making, drawing and of course doodling. You’ll get to choose if you want to create a painting filled to the brim with wild organic lines or create a shape, like a heart, butterfly, your home state etc. to fill in. You can also choose to add some representational images hidden inside (see Colorado example).
You will have an opportunity to develop your drawing skills as well as relax, let go and be free. Practice drawing what you see. Spend time in what Jennifer calls the ‘BC Zone’ or doing blind contour drawings. You will explore mindless scribbling, doodling, color mixing, color combination and finding your ‘color voice’. By letting go of the final outcome, you will develop your ability to experiment and grow as an artist.
On this day in my class you can expect to:
• draw from life & photographs
• blind contour (draw, but don’t look at your paper)
• get into ‘the BC zone’
• scribble to loosen up
• let go of outcome
• doodle with paint
• draw lots of lines
• paint inside your lines
• play with color
• have fun!
