I’ve been watching Pam Garrison and Jennifer Mercede on Creativebug teaching their Daily Abstract Painting Prompts class and I’ve followed along with the artist Sonia Brittian sharing her abstract sketchbook on Instagram and felt inspired to start one myself.
I love that there is no right or wrong way with it. You respond to what is on the page. If you are interested in playing or need to work through some feelings I highly recommend it.
I’ve been using cheap craft store acrylics and water soluble crayons in a cheap soft covered sketchbook. You don’t need a ton of time and it is all about the process. You will probably make new discoveries with your paint and tools. I used a palette knife, brushes and old gift cards to spread the paint and scraped into the paint with these as well as the water soluble crayons. Let me know if you decide to give it a try.
