Art & Soul is where everyone with no experience can dive in and start to enjoy art for health and happiness. Kim Cookson gives you art tips that are doable, affordable, and portable!
One of the best ways to start to draw and feel comfortable with a pencil and paper in your hands is doodling. Just give it a try and don’t think of anything but the fun of dashing around the page!
Introducing more creative lines within the inside lines of your doodle drawing creates more energy to your piece! Experimenting is lots of fun to let go some more!
Now things are really cooking! You have created your doodle, poured more energy into your drawing with a variety of mixing and matching lots of lines and now you’re ready to colour! Pick your favourite colours and just start filling in the doodle as if it were a colouring page, but you have created it!
Apply the first three lessons to a new doodle and create a variety of colour combinations with paint, coloured pencil, and pastel whatever you have around the house will work. Just keep experimenting with whatever you have to use and let go of judgement, finding the mantra for your happiness! You're bonding with the materials now and seeing for yourself what you can create.
