How to Doodle a Framed Picture



Step 1

Begin by doodling a rectangle in the middle of your page. Around the edges of this rectangle doodle four straight lines that are the same length as each side of the rectangle. Now, join these lines up at the four corners using arcs.

Step 2

Time to spice up your framed picture with some artistic doodling. Let’s doodle a landscape scene. Use straight zig-zag lines for the mountain backdrop. Use arches for the rolling hills in the foreground. It doesn’t yet look like much of a landscape, but we’re just getting started. 🙂

Step 3

Add more flair to your picture by doodling more details to your landscape. Use straight and curvy lines to doodle trees, to doodle snow covering the mountain tops, and to doodle a cloud in the sky. Very simple stuff. Doodling shouldn’t ever be too complicated. 😉

Step 4

Time to add some final touches to your framed picture. Begin by adding some shading to your landscape right under the trees. Next, add details to your frame using dots and angle shapes on the four corners. Also, don’t forget to hang your framed picture on the wall. For this purpose, simply doodle a dot and an arc.

Step 5

The final step is to add a splash of color to your framed picture doodle. You can either use natural colors that we typically see when looking at a mountain landscape or you can be creative and use unusual but complementary colors that give your doodle some added personality and character.
