1) Make your mind a blank slate. Don’t think about anything. When your mind is clear, pick up a pencil and begin to move your hand in any direction on a blank piece of paper for one minute. Then from your line doodle, pick a section of your line. On a clean sheet of paper, using your chosen line segment, start a new doodle. Spend only a minute or two on your doodle, transforming this doodle into a picture.
Here is my doodle line (the curly one) that I made into a picture.
A bird air surfing through the spray of rollicking ocean waves.
