Meditative, watercolour

Book cover 

I’ve found a spare blank journal to use for my meditative art. Here’s the front cover:


Sorry I can’t make the picture any smaller!

The white background is gesso, as I thought it would be a good base for working on. I’ve yet to try the paper – that’s today’s  aim, in between working- I’ll keep you posted!

Do you do meditative art? If so, what do you do? I’d be interested to know!

Book review- creative girl by Danielle Donaldson

I got this book for my birthday in November , but it didn’t come until this past week.

Although this book is primarily about water colours, there is mixed media too. Colour is explored, doodling, composition and visual tension. I have done two of the exercises and I found them enjoyable and most importantly, I have learned from them, almost immediately, which to me, makes this book valuable.  I think it might be aimed at someone with some experience , as some things she talks about I’ve never heard of, although that just means I have to look them up! The section on supplies is helpful, and I have most of them, so probably others will too.

I recommend this book, it takes you to another world 🙂
