This was meant to be a “doodle”. I think doodle’s are meant to be quick, spontaneous pieces that are done in a relatively short space of time, at least in one sitting.
This took about two weeks!! (Guess I’m not a doodler!)
I just kept adding to it as the mood took me and pottered with it in front of the idiot box. It was inspired by 8 year old me (what is my fascination with Enid Blyton’s Faraway Tree about?!)
It’s no masterpiece but I think it’s childlike and whimsical and I got to play with ink pen and colour pencils – the cool Derwent watercolour ones that turn into paint when you wet them!
