VIDEO: 5 Abstract Scribble Exercises To Help You Let Go

Abstract scribble exercises by Kim Dellow


Letting go so that we can be free with our art is not as easy as you would think it should be is it? I think it is something that many of us need to practice so I have some more abstract scribble exercises in my art video today to help you to let go.

Scribbling and getting use to making a mess and just being free to play is a great way to short circuit our creative stops, so I hope you have fun with these abstract scribbles.

The first three exercises are really focused on letting go and then the second two develop it further and give you a couple of ideas on where you can take your abstract scribbles next.
