It’s been awhile since I had the time or inspiration to experiment in my mixed-media sketchbook. As usual, once I get going, I realize how much I miss this freedom to experiment, paint, draw and doodle with different media.
I was inspired by Alisa Burke’s post on watercolor blooms. I don’t do abstract illustrations very often, so I thought this would be a good prompt to just make some streaks and splatters and see what the colors reveal.
Then I filled up the page with wildflower doodles using my favorite black pens. It’s amazing how different this page looks!
And now I have a fun new art print that I love! Note to self: do this more often.

Just love it, you brought a smile to my day. Thanks.
Happy drawing and painting.
Thanks so much, Bev!
Terri these are beautiful , the line work you’ve made contrasts really well with the spontaneous water splashes here and there on your page :). Great work and you should definitely keep it up ! If making art like this makes you happy and gives you a sense of artistic freedom it can only go from strength to strength I think 🙂 can’t wait to see more of your work unfold. kate x
Thanks so much, Kate! I really appreciate your feedback and comments. My sketchbook is almost full of fun pages like this, which is great motivation to keep going and make more work.
