The thing is when I doodled and did what I thought was nothing, I'd be happier. It was fun and didn't feel like working. That's one thing about doing The Artist's Way course is it makes you become aware and steers you towards the process of art which could lead to exciting ideas. It makes you feel like playing again another day and see what happens next.
I've been playing with watercolors for a while so they're readily available to me. I love oil painting, but since I cleaned my palette a few years ago I haven't been able to start up again. I bought a couple of small stretched canvases recently so maybe something will happen with them soon. For now, it's watercolor. I just thought I'd see how the paint reacts with different brushes, wet paper or dry, what will happen to the paint when I add one color next to previously applied colors. Playing with the medium to see how controllable, or not, it is.
