Experience your own personal art lesson with oodles of tips and techniques on how to decorate
Doodling and patterning are wonderful ways to embellish your images to make them unique to you and really stand out! You can add doodles to a design before coloring or after. Adding doodles after coloring works best on designs colored with markers.
Shading is a great way to add depth and sophistication to a drawing. Even layering just one color on top of another can be enough to indicate shading. And of course, you can combine different media to create shading.
Blending allows you to make smooth transitions between different tints and shades of a color when shading, and even between two different colors when creating gradients. Here are some simple techniques to produce flawless blends.

I was born in the summer of '79, and six weeks later experienced my first intercontinental plane ride. I've been hooked on travel ever since. I learned to walk in Saudi Arabia, stayed with a tribal village family in India, visited a civil war refugee camp in Sri Lanka, had my palm read in Nepal, floated on a bamboo raft down a Thai river, picked wild berries in rural Wales, co-founded a Buddhist-inspired eco-retreat center in the south of France, and got married under a basswood tree in Australia. And that's just part of it!
The world offers us an amazing variety of experiences - cultures to explore, places to see, differences to appreciate. Art is my way of assimilating and interpreting the world around me. Through art, I process my external experiences, reflect on my inner experiences and merge the two together in a visual union that I share with the world. I truly hope that through my art you will be inspired to create your own art, and/or be encouraged you to share your unique vision with the world in some other creative way.
