Riffing is usually associated with jazz or comedy, for example, where a musician takes a motif or melody and improvises different possibilities. So let’s take this idea and apply it to art!!! You will absolutely NOT love everything you develop. I think that’s really the point. If you only make what you KNOW will work, you aren’t expanding your creative process. You aren’t bringing in new elements, fresh life. So throw some wrenches into the process, add some twists, play with ideas, be willing to make stuff that doesn’t look like any of your other stuff. And don’t apologize for it. Don’t critique it. Look at it, figure out what worked, and do more of that. Oh how quickly a full pad of watercolor paper can go when obsessed!!! So freeing to get ideas OUT onto the page without deciding in advance what will theoretically work and what won’t! It’s like the way you might tackle a sketchbook page, where you’re trying to get the feel for a scene or a perspective. Capturing a mood, a framework, documenting the flowers that are in bloom, whatever. Getting it all down on paper — loose and un-scripted, so to speak!
