Watercolor Flower Doodles On Splattered Paint

I love to do watercolor flower doodles. When I doodle I like to have a paint brush in my hand instead of a pen or pencil. My Koi watercolor set and water brush is perfect for this. Its hard for me to know where to start when I have a blank paper in front of me so I like one that has some acrylic paint splattered on it. Sometimes I spend an hour and splatter paint on 20-25 4×6 watercolor postcards.If I don’t have any postcards I cut a large piece of watercolor paper into 4×6 cards. Sometimes I splatter two different greens on the same card. Other times I just use one color of green and only do a few splatters to give variety. You can learn how I splatter paint here.I let them dry then store them with my on the go watercolor kit. When I have a few extra minutes and want to play with paint I can pull one out and do some flower doodles with my watercolors. I experiment with different colors and types of flowers. I love the free flower drawing video tutorials from The House That Lars Built. I also look on google images for wild flower ideas. Then I practice and experiment. If I don’t like how one turns out I’m not out much and I throw it away. If I like the finished results I can use it to write a note to a friend or put it with a gift. This is a fun way to make cards and postcards.

They all grow in nature in a variety of colors on tall stems. Sometimes I use my imagination and create pretty colorful flowers that I can’t name. Daffodils also work well.

  1. they are so unique and just beautiful Tammy! Very generous of you to share the spattered green for those who prefer not to. I think it’s quite fun:)

  2. I am NOT an artist, but a science teacher who wants her students to do nature journaling. I greatly appreciate this suggestion about paint spattering. It will be fun for the students (and me) to try, and you’re right- a spattered page is much less intimidating than a blank page. Thank you!
