Have you ever wanted to paint something, anything, but you don't have a plan?
Most of my art starts with a drawn sketch and I usually stick to it fairly closely.
But yesterday I wanted to play with colour and all I knew was I wanted to make something for "Art Journal Journey" where the theme is "Architecture".
I'm also linking to "Paint Party Friday" where friends share what they have made during the previous week.
I got out my motley collection of painting pens (watercolour and acrylic),
started by painting a lemon art studio, then let the pens carry on.
How did they do it?
You know the colouring books which are about everywhere?
This is the other way round - the pens played with their colours first then I did the outlines afterwards - like this.
This is what we ended up with.
Pretty good fun for a bunch of pens.
So what happened next?
I could paint in the background, or I could put it into Photoshop and try out some of my many painted backgrounds to find which worked the best - which I did.
It's a bonkers painting but the pens and I had a good time.
Do you let your pens and paints have a good time?
