I just wanted to play with thick, blobby paint, texture and a bit of subtle stamping.
I used two of my favorite stamping/stenciling tools -- sequin waste and a nerf dart. Plus this hand cut pinwheel stamp.
I don't think it's essential to go on an "artist date" then come home and put your inspiration instantly in your sketchbook. Sometimes the most important take-away is simply the experience. But, this was a fun follow for me.
