Below is doodle #2. This one got carried away. It is a too much. I was thinking of other things while doing it and kept on going. I guess, in some ways, that is what doodling is about; doing it absent-mindedly. I do that often when I have a pencil in my hand and I am waiting for someone on the phone. Although it is quite messy, it was a good reminder for me that texture and pattern are more effective when there is some "blank" space left around them.
So on to doodle #3, done on a different day with more intention put into the doodling instead of the wandering mind. I like this one much better.
