Ten Minute Doodle: Space Garden

Those aliens (I mentioned them in my recent Letters To The Universe post!) have filled my mind with scenes of wonder from their home world. I have to work quickly to try to capture as much of the image as I can, before it dissolves away into the darkest recesses of my memory.

This has been created using Photoshop Elements, in layers, in just a little over ten minutes – I must be honest. It was still rushed, however!

Ten Minute Doodle: Lightning on the Horizon

It’s a stormy night out there! And the window’s leaking in. Ulp!

This is a quick experiment using the brushes in Photoshop Elements, a reduced and free version of Photoshop I acquired with some other software. I do like to experiment, don’t you know?

Ten Minute Doodle: Golden Sunrise

Another quick(ish) Ten-Minute(ish) digital doodle of a misty golden sunrise in some realm of my imagination. The colours were actually put together in less than ten minutes, but the image needed a little enhancement elsewhere, with a little tweak here and another there just to make the colours less like each other, so the tweaks took the creation of the image to just over ten minutes.

Tweak free, however, the image still looks like a watery sunrise, so by my Law of Averages, it took exactly ten minutes to complete.

What? I have to control time some way, so this is as good a way as any!

Ten Minute Doodle: The Island

A quick digital ten-minute doodle of an island or a rock out in the middle of a clear blue sea somewhere. The waves lapping quite vigorously against one side, and a few clouds gathering in the clear blue sky above.

I let the colours guide me with this one, even though I wanted to keep the actual number of colours used down. It was fun to create, and didn’t take long at all to come together!


A very quick digital doodle of a lakeside scene

As Spring is in the air, I thought why not. And a quick thirty minutes of sploshing some colour around is good for the soul!
