5 Colorful Doodles:

1. Rainbow wonky circles.

For this example, I used ALL of the TwinTone Markers and just simply scribbled wonky circles. Go in rainbow order and you won’t be disappointed.

2. Geometric pattern.

I used the dot grid to establish an easy pattern with the blue and then filled in areas. I used Tombow Dual Brush Pen colors and picked them off of a blending palette with a Blender pen. All linked below. On the facing side, I painted a black background and added gel pen designs on top.

3. Marker Floral art.

Here I used the Tombow Dual Brush Pens as markers, and with the brush tip of the pen, I simply doodled flower shapes to fill the page. So much fun and I love the floral vibe!

4. Rainbow Brush Stroke art.

Simply use your paintbrush strokes to create colorful art. Remember, the Archer and Olive notebooks won’t work for direct watercoloring. You will need to use a blending palette to lift your colors in an Indirect method. Watch the video to see it.

5. Watercolor Floral doodles.

Create a monochrome watercolor doodle using two or three colors. This is such a simple idea, and the color variation adds a nice interest to the doodles.
