I simply overlook how a lot I take pleasure in drawing ‘small artwork’. A small piece of paper is much less overwhelming, and the creativity is not any much less soothing to coronary heart, soul and thoughts.

Drawing with pen on paper is rarely overwhelming. It’s a contented, peaceable, delighted expertise for me, particularly once I work intuitively. The flowy, summary patterns, with varied patterns and textures are all the time a pleasure to attract and work with. Beginning with only one form and permitting the design to type, not realizing what’s going to seem from the nib of my pen, is a consider marvel, shock and magic.

I lose myself within the intricacy of the drawing. then, there’s the addition of color and distinction to carry the drawing to life. What was flat now seems to have quantity to it. The colors could evoke feelings or recollections. There’s a story to be instructed within the drawing, however not one that’s apparent as an illustration would make it. That is an internal story, an internal expression of my creativity, feelings, ideas, and what shapes, traces, patterns, textures and objects that make me smile.

If my artwork makes you smile, or brings you pleasure, peace and/or calm, then it’s completed it’s job. There may be sufficient on this world to make us suppose, to make us really feel uncomfortable. We’re assaulted by such issues consistently by the media. Time and house to have a break from all of that, to remind us that there’s nonetheless marvel and sweetness, kindness and compassion and creativity on this world is vital. It’s additionally vital to remind ourselves that us people have an excellent capability to create these vital qualities that heal and soothe and join us, assist us to really feel we belong as a member of humanity.

I’m unsure I acquired all of the phrases I may say on the market. Hopefully you’ll perceive what I’m making an attempt to get throughout.

I believe what I’m making an attempt to say is that I hope my artwork reminds you that magnificence and marvel, occasions of peace and contentment, pleasure and belonging are important to every of us. That’s nonetheless not proper. Maybe as soon as day I’ll handle to precise these emotions succinctly in phrases.

Including color, nonetheless, is a one other story. I get overwhelmed by the method at occasions. I doubt my selection of colors, and shortly remorse what I’ve determined to do. I all the time attempt to bear in mind to scan my drawing in earlier than I begin to apply color with conventional media; if I mess up no less than I’ve a clear copy I can add color to digitally.

Additionally, there are a lot of occasions the place I simply get fed up of the method of including color and quit earlier than completion. I can discover it a really tedious course of. But, once I full the method and all of it comes collectively I’m typically actually stunned and happy with the tip end result. The frustration is available in as a result of it takes a lot longer so as to add color than it does to attract a design!

Having mentioned that, there have been a few items of paintings I’ve completed just lately the place I’ve partly colored them and I actually just like the impact, particularly one the place I’ve added shade first. That’s one thing for me to think about going ahead for positive.
