Art Journal Detail: Wing it drawing

Wing it is means to do something with no preparation. That is the concept of my entire art journal practice.

Maybe my entire life… I just wing it.

Art Journal Peek: Wing it Baby

When you wing it all kind of things happen. Things that you didn’t expect. A doodle becomes a drawing becomes a bird becomes a friend. From there it can’t go wrong, right?

Sometimes it’s had not to over-think it, and then not over-work a page. Sometimes this and that on a page looks totally crazy. Sometimes this and that comes together and it looks good.

All you can do is to wing it, baby!

    very inspiring! I probably could use more of this in my creative life; it seems whenever I do something creative (usually painting or sewing) I find myself painstakingly fine-tuning the details; it can be an exhaustive process.

    Love your pages! Some of the best pages in an art journal for me are also from “winging it” and doing it without a set plan! Thanks for your inspiration!

    So true! I have my greatest success, it seems, and certainly my greatest satisfaction from “winging it,” and not getting too caught up in the details. And that runs totally contrary to my nature, so managing it is a success in itself!
