Angela said...

So pretty! I love doodling! :)

Jessica Snellings said...

Why are you so good! Haha. I would need a pencil, heavy duty eraser..and someone to water color for me if I was to attempt what you do.

Do you ever find yourself scrapping a sketch or do you work "mistakes" into the final piece?

Great! Very inspiring. :)

Lesley Edmonds said...

That was brilliant. You are so inspiring - I'm off to doodle!!! I have just bought some watercolours for the first time so will practice with just the one colour and see how I get on.
Thank you.

It's good to see this information in your post, i was looking the same but there was not any proper resource.

Sandye said...

You make it look so effortless! Beautiful, love the use of just a single color!

HRANDICA said...

Beautiful again.Interesting in one colour.

astr!d said...

thank you for posting these. i really enjoy watching your process and i learn something each time!!!!

Kathy@mishmashmom said...

That. was. awesome. If you were to use an additional color, would you wait for the first color to dry first?

Noel said...

Wonderful floral designs! Do you print your designs onto fabric? I would love something like this for sewing a skirt or dress:)

You never fail to inspire me and make my fingers itchy to grab a pen, some paper and watercolors and go on a journey. Thank you for sharing! I am a huge fan.

Awesome idea for a post! Thanks for sharing.

Fil Campbell said...

These are just gorgeous Alisa - I could spend hours watching your videos and get no work done lol

I am so enjoying your Create Daily Online Course - like Jessica Snellings said up above, I could be drawing flowers for the rest of my life and they'll never turn out like yours - but I'm having so much fun practicing. The trick now will be to actually get on with some of my own work lol

I may or may not have just been sitting here watching this in the University Library...

I love watching your creativity. This may have finally inspired me to go ahead and do some of my own doodles.

Is that just a water filled 'brush/pen' that you use?

I also love the fact that this is all made with just a black pen and one colour...

Potiron said...

you make it look so easy!!! I love your music selection, very "jazz manouche"...

thank you once again for your insight and sharing!!!

Kelly said...

Okay, that freaking rocks! Love it :)

Stacey said...

I can watch that stuff all day.

Dangerous Doodler said...

What is the "brush" you are using? It looks like the handle could be filled with something...or is that just the way I am looking at it? But even still, the brush different from the brushes I use for any of my acrylic paintings. Longer bristles....I would like to know if it is special for the water colors?

BEAUTIFUL and inspiring!!!

Unique Hrebina said...

tnx for showing us that... i love it...

tammie said...

What kind of watercolors do you use?

I agree with everyone: gorgeous, inspiring, great music and keep it coming! AND here's some on THE PROS AND CONS OF "DOODLE"
Sunni Brown at the TEDtalks makes a fantastic presentation on the "for" http://blog.ted.com/2011/09/23/doodlers-unite-sunni-brown-on-ted-com/
though I think she (and we all) may be walking up a steep hill in educating the wider world. In the "against"
Zentangle.com creators Maria Thomas and Rick Roberts http://zentangle.blogspot.com/
opine that the word "doodle" is almost never used without some connotaion of minimizing the artistry or effort, and using it in a pejorative way, as in "that's *just* doodling". And, if you take a look on their blog there is no way that Zentangle can be dismissed...

Joanne said...

once again another wonderful inspiration -- thank you -- you make everything look so easy -- will have to try one color -- have a happy week end :0)

Julissa Mora said...

I loved seeing your doodle come to life. Thanks for sharing the video with us. I am also curious about your brush. Can it be filled with water in the handle part?

Neenish Arts said...
