Hi there! I’m a self-taught artist. I started painting when I was 14 and have been at it ever since. My paintings are abstracts, utilizing a variety of mediums, including acrylic, spray paint, oil and magic marker. Some are abstract in nature while others are more representational. I also love to create and write about art tips on my blog:

Hello, my name is Michelle Hines, and I am an experienced artist who has been painting for over 20 years.

I have a unique approach to painting that enables me to create multiple sketches on one canvas by layering paint instead of paper or canvas. My paintings are bold and colorful works of art that express the joy of creativity and explore the idea that art can be found anywhere in life.

I am an artist because it is my passion and my calling in life. Art has been my main source of exploration and expression for as long as I can remember. My artwork allows me to look at the world in new ways, which in turn allows me to grow artistically as well as emotionally. It has helped me discover new feelings about myself and others around me. Art has given me a deeper appreciation for this beautiful world we live in.


Scribble Art is the process of creating multiple sketches on one canvas. You can use this to create extra paintings, or to add detail to a single painting.

The basic idea is that you will be working with a wet-into-wet wash. This means that when you paint, the paint adheres to areas of the painting which are not dry. As long as you are still mixing paints, you can mix colors right on top of the painting, without any danger of ruining it. Even after your painting is dry, if you paint over an area which has not fully dried, it won’t ruin your painting because the two layers of paint will mix together and create an entirely new color.

A useful trick for scribble art is to have a good set of watercolors (I recommend Winsor & Newton Artists’ Watercolor) and a nice big tray for mixing paints in (I recommend a Dixie cup). Get all your colors mixed up and ready to go before you start your art project. Once everything is set up and ready to go, then begin! Here’s how I do it:

1.)  Start with a light pencil sketch and some very loose washes of color in the background area. (I used yellow ochre

It’s not that hard to learn how to paint. Anyone can do it. I am going to show you how I paint, and how you can too.

I will be using acrylic paints, but you can use oil or watercolor paints too.

You don’t need a fancy art set with tubes and brushes, though if you have them, go ahead and use them.

But basically all you need is a canvas and some paints. A canvas is just a big piece of paper; the only reason they’re expensive is because they are made out of cotton or linen. You can get rolls of paper at any art supply store, in fact, even Walmart or Target carries them (Walmart carries cheap ones). They usually come in big rolls 10 feet wide or so; you need one about 3 feet wide for this project. If the canvas is too small for your painting, just tape some pieces together (if it’s paper) or staple some pieces together (if it’s fabric).

And that’s pretty much it for materials! You don’t need anything else right now.

I’m an artist. I love painting, drawing, sculpting and everything else art related. However, I don’t have much talent for it. But that doesn’t stop me from trying! My goal is to paint and draw every day, even if it’s just a doodle. I will post pictures, videos and tutorials of my artwork here so you can learn how to do it too.

Artists love to talk about their art. But most of the time, they don’t make a whole lot of sense. I think the reason is because there are so many ways to do art that it is like trying to describe how to drive a car or cook a steak or tie your shoes. It’s easy to give examples, but hard to come up with rules that cover everything.

So instead of trying to come up with rules, I am just going to show you what I do and let you figure out the rules for yourself. Maybe these examples will help you find new ways to make scribble art of your own.

Using Color

If you want your painting to look good, use lots of different colors. The idea is that if one color is bland, adding another color next to it can make it more interesting. But if you have too many colors they will get muddy and blend together and make no sense at all. So there are two limits on how many colors you can use:

* How many are in the original photo?

* How many can you bear to look at side by side?

As an example, here is a painting done in four colors: red, yellow, green and blue:

Here is another painting done in three

When you paint a picture, you put down one color at a time—that’s obvious. But where do you put it down? If you’re going to make an interesting picture, it should have some parts that don’t touch other parts. That way it will look three-dimensional and alive.

But if you don’t want your painting to look like a pile of junk, all the parts have to be connected in some way. They can’t just be floating there in space.

This is the problem of scribble art. You can look at pictures by M C Escher or Joan Miro and see that they have solved it, but how?

Recently, I was asked to teach a friend’s daughter how to paint. I started by asking her what she liked. She and I both like scribble art.

Scribble art is abstract. It is based on the principle that if you take one line and change its direction slightly and join it to another line that goes in a different direction, you can create an interesting pattern.

Trying new things is how you learn, how you grow. Experimenting with styles or techniques other than your own is a great way to learn about yourself as an artist.

I use this technique when teaching kids to paint. I tell them to close their eyes, pick up a brush and just scribble on the paper until they like something they have done. Not everything they do will be good, but when they put down the same brush later after having painted with it for a while, they will find that what came out initially looked nothing like what they are doing now. You start with a basic pattern which looks childlike and simple, but then add another color which changes the mood of the painting or the color of the background which makes the composition more interesting or completely different from what it was before. It takes practice to get good at doing this because most people don’t think
