Morning Art

For quite a while now I have done art (almost) every morning. It started in 2015 with over 300 paintings in gouache and then last year I filled a special morning book mostly with drawings of patterns and abstracts.

Over the past months I integrated my morning art with my every day journal. Now that journal is about to close. In fact I just finished the last morning art page in it. So here are the last seven morning art drawings I did in my journal (the Allround Book about which you can see more here).

This may be my favourite pattern ever!

Now this journal is full it is time to move on to yet another form of morning art. I will separate it from the journal again. I do love the integration, but not all journals are equally suitable to make art in and also I like to have specific books with specific purposes, because...well...I'm a control freak and I like things nicely ordered. ;-)

I will tell you all about my next morning art experimentation when I have the first pages to show, but that's for another post. For now I just wish you a wonderful and artsy day.


  1. Carin, all of the pages are awesome but ... oh, the last one is absolutely AMAZING!! ❤️ ❤️

    1. I like how different people have different favorites. ;-)

  2. These are great! Do you use light pencil lines to guide you?

    1. Sometimes I draw a grid, sometimes just soms dots where the circles go and sometimes I just do it freehand. It's usually a combination of some guidance and freehand. In the above post, pictures 4,6 and 7 were done without any guidelines or dots or grids, the rest was done with a simple dotted grid as a guide, but drawn freehand.


I appreciate each and every comment. They make me really happy. I don't like spammers though and that's why the word verification is turned on. I know it's a pain, but I hope you understand.

I try to respond to all comments by directly replying in the comment section, but please understand that sometimes this may take some time. Know that I read them all and that they make my day.
