Can't stop doodling......
on 1 October 2017
I purchased this book based on the reviews. My first impression on opening the book was slight disappointment. The book consists of a page of simple drawings on a single topic e.g. trees, with a blank page opposite for 20 of your own efforts. An adult colouring book? No.
After my initial response I sat down and began to doodle and draw the suggested 20 items. Once started I found it hard to stop and as the pages turned I found that my drawing confidence was increasing. Some topics were harder and or more appealing than others - 20 snails is a big ask. Lol.
This is a book designed to nudge you gently to draw or doodle. Most of us struggle to get started stating that we either can't draw or don't know what to draw. This book is a lovely place to start. Use pencil and an eraser to start. Then use ink pens and colour.
Finally, I realised that part of my issue with drawing in this book was the childhood mantra of respecting printed books and under no circumstances adding my own creative daubs. If this is you, it's okay to draw on these pages.....really!
