If you need a little fun in your life and need to loosen up - well, I've the got the book for you.
I just got my signed copy in from Carla Sonheim - hot off the press.
I went crazy devouring it and experimenting with the new ideas.
It gives you 52 little creative exercises to improve your drawings and make drawing fun and stress free.
I had a lot of fun with the 8th chapter where you just paint red, yellow and blue on a page and then "find" the creature(s) in the random paint marks. I found that it really helped train my eye to work with the paint and encouraged my imagination and also helped me to trust my instincts.
Aren't these funny?? Like my little grandson says: "Sometimes I just crack myself up".
(This one of the cat came about by looking at a cracked wall and finding an image .)Exercise 38
Is this serious art? Maybe not. I think these will make great collages for cards and make my friends smile. They will be fun exercises to share with my grandsons. I think I will go back to this every time I begin to take myself too seriously. Thanks CARLA Freakin Awesome SONHEIM!
Go ahead - crack yourself up today and we'll share the grins.
