I’m not really a massive rainbow person, but I can’t seem to stay away from making them lately. Maybe my rainbow tangle drawing opened up the floodgates, or maybe I’m subconsciously hoping to nab a leprechaun, but I’ve major rainbows on my mind lately.
This idea popped into my head and I had to immediately draw it. This technique HAD to have been influenced by all the labyrinths I’ve been drawing lately, because it’s a very fluid, non-stop way to draw rainbows.
It’s fun! Watch the video to see how you can draw rainbows without lifting your hand from the page, and then you can check out some of the little rainbow doodles I drew.
Fluid Rainbow Doodles
I found that it was the most fun to draw the smallest ones – probably because I had more control while drawing.
It was also fun to play around with adding in more or fewer colors, and switching away from the basic rainbow colors.
Finally, I just had to explore other doodly rainbow shapes: the rainbow circles look cool, and I loved the difference in how the rainbow colors looked from the outside in vs the inside out.
