I was stuck late in the office a couple of nights ago, waiting for Hubby to finish working on reports to meet a deadline. I didn’t have any deadlines to meet, and I didn’t want to work any more. My brain had already shut off at 5 pm, so it wasn’t accepting reading any work emails, anyway.
But my fingers wanted to be doing something. I did have a crochet project with me, but I didn’t want to work on it. I wasn’t feeling it – it’s probably going to be frogged and I will be looking for another pattern to work on.
So I started doodling. Well, I guess you could call this ‘structured’ doodling, because I was using a ruler, and trying to measure out equal spaces free hand (no protractor on hand). I thought maybe I could come up with a decent mandala this time, I had all the time to work on it now.
I had something in mind, but I forgot what I wanted to do by the time I started drawing. I wasn’t planning on any shading until I had finished drawing it out, but then there was a little mistake here and there, so I started to draw over the lines, and now there’s shading.
This is how far I’ve gotten. I’ve cleaned it up a bit, and will start shading and blacking, until I decide whether to cover up the whole sheet, or stop here. It’s not perfectly round with symmetrical designs – so much for drawing lines and measuring out spaces, lol – but I’m getting there.
Have a good weekend, everybody!
