About This Class

In this class, we will explore ways to incorporate color into our doodles using gel pens. 

If you’ve never doodled before, you might want to take one or both of my previous doodle art classes before taking this class:

Doodle Art: Basics and Beyond

Doodle Art: Curvy and Organic Designs

But even if you’re an absolute beginner, you should be able to dive right into this class.

All you need for this class is some paper, a black pen, and a handful of gel pens. I’ll tell you about the different types of gel pens I’ve tried, and which ones I recommend and why. We’ll practice some warm up doodle designs using gel pens and a black pen, and experiment with different ways to combine the two. Then we’ll doodle over white paper, black paper, and kraft paper. Finally, we’ll paint a messy dry brush acrylic background and doodle over it with a black pen and a gel pen.

So grab a black pen, some paper, and a couple of gel pens, and let’s get started!
