Art Journal- Messy Flowers

I tend to try and make a lot of straight almost ridged lines when I paint and I”m trying to loosen up my hand a bit so in keeping with the flowers I so often paint I decided to use some bright craft paints from the dollar store and leave my hand as ‘loose’ as possible.  I tried not to worry about whether or not every bit of a leaf was colored in or if the entire shape was outlined fully and I honestly like the result.
This picture is a little more free flowing looking than my usual coloring-book like images and I think I’d like to experiment with letting go of my very type A tendencies and then see where that leads.
