Black and white flower zendoodle


I don't watch a lot of television...and when I do, it's mostly movies.  But I am completely unable to sit in front of the television and JUST watch it.  I have to have at least a pen and notbook in hand.  Tonight, we went to the movies, which has been one of my favorite things to do since I was a little kid, sitting through a summer of Disney double features.  But, I think I've been ruined for it.  I found myself getting antsy halfway thought the movie because I couldn't be drawing while watching.  How sad! 

Linking up to all the fun over at Sunday Sketches

  1. Oooh, I love your pen work. Such a nice dip and flow, reminds me of copperplate fonts. Lovely.

    And yeah, I agree, unless it is a movie I have never seen before, it is really good to have something to do with your hands.

    Best wishes,
    Liz

  3. So funny because I know what you mean. It's rare that I'm completely engrossed by something on TV, but when I am, I actually feel guilty that I'm not paying attention to my art. And my hands do end up feeling kinda naked! Anyway great flowers, especially the extensions (pistils?) that curve outward.

  4. This is gorgeous! I understand about not sitting still. I'm constantly trying to think of ways to get in more art time.

  10. Gorgeous flowers! I love how your lines go from thick to thin and back again...for some reason I always keep my lines uniform but I think I will take some inspiration from you and try this. I often draw while watching TV...

  11. What wonderful doodles! I TOO am a TV doodler. BUT my boys are on my case if we are watching a movie and, "MOM! You're not watching!" So I have to force myself to pay attention and keep the drawing in the studio. Only when we are watching a movie together, otherwise I am all over it!

  13. The only time I actually don't sketch, read, write with visual stimulation going IS at the movies. My husband will harp at me constantly at home if there's a Movie either on TV or that he baught/rented that he thinks I should see (or I wanted to see) and i'm not paying -enough- attention to it. I tell him I AM and I can correctly tell hi whats been going on and everything!


    He Just Doesn't Get Me!

  14. I love the doodles and understand totally the itchy movie feeling... so many films just seem too long... at least with a dvd you can stop it for a cup of tea or something... sitting there always makes me edgy... not even chocolate buttons can take the edge off for me these days... I think it is a sign of an engaged mind... Sinus thinks it is ADHD... I think you should doodle next time... would be fun to see how it turned out in the low light!!!

  16. Love your zen doodle! Too bad you couldn't enjoy your movie but I guess there are worse things than wanting to be productive, lol! Happy PPF!

  20. Super doodles! I can't sit and watch a movie without doing something either. I usually sew, but think I may have to give doodling a go too!
