Last week, I participated in a virtual art workshop. A small piece of canvas was supplied to participants prior to the workshop. I taped my canvas square to a piece of paper, so I could paint to the edges without getting paint all over. After the workshop was over and I removed my canvas square, I had areas of acrylic paint on the edges of my paper. Over the next few days, I mindlessly doodled on these patches of paint. It was so fun!
In fact, it was so enjoyable, I purposely made more patches of acrylic paint to doodle on! Art shouldn’t always be about the final piece. The creative process and the fun of exploration are just as important.

Yesterday, when I pulled out my new patches of paint to doodle on – I was so excited! The bright colors were so inspiring.
When you have a chance – Play. Try my acrylic doodling idea or doodle on a newspaper, catalog, or scrap paper. Just have fun and play.
You don’t need any specific materials to play – grab what you have on hand. But if you want to know what I used:
- Canson Multimedia Sketchbook
- Acrylic paints – from Blick and Liquitex
- Gel pens – white (Gelly Roll) and black (Uniball Signo)
- Molotow paint pens – gold, grey, and blue
