Every work of art begins with the stroke of a pencila line, curve, or shape. And the creation of a masterpiece only requires additional inspiration and initiative. In The Art Doodle Book, the beginnings of drawings based on the works of twenty-six of the world’s most renowned artists, including Chagall, da Vinci, Degas, Hokusai, Matisse, Rembrandt, and Warhol, serve as starting points for the aspiring artist. Prompted by a boat in a Monet or an eye in a Picasso, doodlers of all ages are encouraged to embellish and create original and exciting masterpieces of their own.
The doodles are accompanied by a finished work by the artist who inspired them, along with a mini-biography detailing the artist’s style and their own sources of inspiration. For anyone who ever looked at a work of art and thought they could have done it better, The Art Doodle Book is the perfect gift.
