Doodling with a Paint Brush

I could definitely get used to doodling with a paintbrush. This is another spread that I started at the Decorative Doodling class.  As you can see at the top half of the page, I really got into a bit of a tiny spiral trance.  I was loving how the 'Twinks' layered so beautifully and the different tones of that fabulous green (Twinkling H2Os Olive Vine) that I was getting depending on the amount of paint on my brush.

When the paint was dry I added some outlining and doodles with a black Pitt pen and then added a 'sketchy text' quote by Frank Zappa.  "A mind is like a parachute.  It doesn't work unless it is open." True story! LOL

  3. Oh I love it...so colorful. I ordered two "twinks" yesterday to try and try..they look so vibrant.

    1. Thanks Danielle. I think you'll like them. Just spritz them with water before you start, just to soften them up and get the paint activated. I'm guessing just two won't be enough in the end...these may become another guilty pleasure!

  4. Thanks so much for this article. I am an artist/writer. I closed my Etsy shop in May, 2012 in hopes to do more writing and artistically to work at honing my skills and "coming out of my box" so to speak. When I see your doodles (sorry if it offends) they look like they could be my own...I love swirlies and also work with mixed media...many are different kinds of paint (most with as much color as possible). Love to experiment even with Encaustics and layered pieces. Anyway, this helped me to feel a bit more like I'm approaching my goals since you are very definitely talently gifted!
