Music doodles

Music doodle

Today I’m sharing a few of my scribbles that I did while listening to music, and letting the music inspire me. I thought today was a good day to share these because I’m at a music festival called Peace & Love today and listening to some cool bands. It’s out of my usual zone of things to do, so I’m quite excited about going.

The music doodles are also out of my normal routine, but extremely fun to do and I recommend that you try it out. I got inspired to do these drawing exercises when artist Jane Davis shared them on her blog. This one is called Blind scribbles, and it’s very freeing to do! I loved putting on some music and then just letting the pencil dance over the paper.

But even more fun was continuing working on the random, quite ugly scribbles and colouring it in with pens, markers and paint. I just love the result!

I used a big paper and filled the whole surface. Here it is big:

This is the second doodle I did, with a black marker and then coloured in with pens.

This is the first doodle I did, using a pencil and then coulring it with paint and pens.

Thanks Jane Davis for the inspiration! Next I’m reading her book Collage Journeys: A Practical Guide to Creating Personal Artwork that I’ve ordered from Amazon! Looking forward to learning more from her.

    This is very cool. It has an urban feel to it. Almost like graffiti. Nice!

    Hanna! This is absolutely brilliant! – I literally went WOW! when I read this! I am obsessed with how music and art play off each other and am absolutely going to try this tonight! — What music were you listening to for each picture? (Thank you for sharing!!)

  3. oo, this is beautiful! the first doodle (the last one shown here) one is my favorite, but i do love the boldness of the others. i wonder if different kinds of music result in different sorts of patterns and lines? i shall have to give this a try!

    Okay, how can I thank you for bringing all these inspiring artists to my fingertips? This is such a wonderful practice and a great way to relax. I really look forward to doing that this weekend, because the week back after our Fourth of July weekend has been MADNESS!

    Have a lovely weekend, my friend!
