I've never thought of myself as someone who doodles ... when I sketch, I most often feel the need to draw places, or to have some reason for drawing, and my sketches tend toward the representational rather than abstract and/or impressionist. Even when I do sketch out of my mind's eye, it's almost always a place (or a building, like the previous post about the Pantheon). This sketch, which was done back in October 2000, is an example. Not sure why this little scene popped into my head, and the trees/sky could surely use a little work, but ... it's comforting somehow. Seems like a nice place to be. So was this a "doodle" or was it something else?
