Messy Calico: Fast, Intuitive Painting
One of the things I love to do is fast, intuitive painting. These are SUPER QUICK sketches in ink and watercolor. They only take a few minutes, and often end up being some of my favorite pieces since I didn't over think things.
I love doing them to loosen up in my sketchbook, and warm up with my supplies. They are also something that I dive into just before I go to bed on days when I didn't have the time to be creative.
Taking 5 min to loosen up helps keep my daily practice fresh and satisfies that urge to make something. (If I don't, the ideas running around my head can keep me up at night! hehe)
Give it a try, just put pen to paper and see what you create! You may surprise yourself :-)
