For Lesson 4*, one could choose a existing doodle or create a new one. I doodled a new one which grew into something more like a tableau:
|Rice paper on wood panel - acrylic paint and Sharpie marker|
The rice paper was really fun to draw on with the Sharpie and it enabled me to be very specific in my imagery. Also adding paint gave "mass" to my doodled scene.
