Paint@Home Webinar: “Doodling on Alcohol Ink” with Ana Paz (free/donation)
May 24 @ 13:00 - 15:00Free
My story started some time ago in Romania, where I was born in a family of 3 different cultures: Greek, German and Ukrainian. Soon after I had finished my engineering education, I left Romania and I lived in different countries as a global nomad. At some point in my life I had a regular office job and eventually a bore out. I saved myself quitting it and retreating into Hindu and Buddhist philosophy. A 2 year stay in an Ashram followed. This altered not just my world views and my beliefs but also influenced the way I express myself in art. I paint with my hands but my feelings, emotions and my intuition are in charge; the hand is just a tool. I never know how a paining is going to look like in the end. It is always a surprise to me. All I am doing is to stay as much as possible in a meditative, no-thought, neutral state of mind and let the intuition do the work, pick the right color, move the canvas, stroke the brush in the right direction.
Ana is organising Painting Retreats in Italy and Switzerland every year. You can find out more details here: https://www.
Doodling on Alcohol Ink
(also works on old Fluid Painting artworks or just any kind of paper)
Doodle Art itself is a style of drawing by doodling. It looks abstract, there is something that does not contain meaning, but also there are some significant, often resulting works that do not have the correct shape but it looks unique and interesting.
Doodling is fun and non-intimidating. It is something we can all do — and likely have done at some point in our lives. In a way doodle art encompasses all I think making art should be: enjoyable even if it can take a lot of time and effort
There five main styles or types of doodle based art are:
- Zentangle ®
- Doodle Art
The beauty of Doodle Art is that it’s fun and relaxing, can be as large as you like, as complex as you like and finished whenever you like. It can be a quick form of art, with repetitive elements creating a harmony with as much effort required as you choose.
Making any mark over and over (and over again!) requires focus and a good deal of patience. If you decide to use doodling extensively in an artwork, be sure to remember this. Just because it is a doodle doesn’t mean it doesn’t take effort on the part of the doodler!
- any of those: gelly roll (white, silver or gold), fine liner, glitter gel pen
- your alcohol ink artworks or fluid painting artworks
- any kind of paper
