Simple and Easy Doodle Art Ideas
Doodling – A Definition
Oxford dictionary offers rather an unsatisfactory definition of doodling – “to scribble absentmindedly” but TED Talk defines doodling as “to make spontaneous marks to help yourself think”. Doodling uses most of the sensory skills like visual, auditory, reading or writing as well as kinesthetic and actually helps you to retain information better.
Shapes from Geometry
Easy enough to draw, you can start with the most basic shapes, like circles, hearts, squares, rectangles, cubes, pyramids, and so on. No matter what your artistic level, geometric shapes make a good doodle subject. You can try your hand at a combination of shapes or just one shape in different ways. Different combinations can actually lead to mazes or intricate sculptural drawings. Isn’t that one of the most simple and easy doodle art ideas to try?
A Combination of Lines and Marks
If you happen to have different pens and pencils, you can experiment with different strokes of the pen or pencil. Let your imagination free and dream up some unique shapes and forms for your doodle. You can use hatching and cross-hatching to make a nice drawing, maybe of a person.
