Maybe it’s the colours, or the eye-stretching vistas, or maybe it’s just the idea that harmony can exist on a square of canvas, but there is something in art that lets it calm and inspire at the same time. It works inside and out, both for the person making it and the person looking on.
Paul Klee found creative serenity in music. For Whistler it was the dusk. For Monet, the dawn. They and so many other artists returned to the surroundings they loved time and again to make beautiful works of art that have continued to calm and inspire viewers ever since. In Drawing Calm, artist Susan Evanson, shows readers how to do the same. It’s a book for everyone – non artists as well as those with plenty of experience in a studio. Using restful, but dynamic, works of art as a starting point, Susan Evanson will teach you how to capture the light and peace of the master painting – simply.
Making use of soft techniques such as torn-paper collage, blended pastels, and wet-on-wet watercolour, this workshop encourages stress-free creativity. Put on the music that makes you happy and choose the colours that take you there too. The point is not to try to copy the master work of art in front of you, but to let it guide you toward your own. The result: A serene and creative highpoint in your day, and a collage or painting of your own that calms and inspires you every time you look at it.
