Simple Lessons to Make Your Creative Practice a Daily Habit – 3 Simple Tools, 21 Lessons, Infinite Creative Possibilities (Art is for Everyone)by Kateri Ewing
Watercolor Is for Everyone guides you through 21 intuitive, process-based painting lessons that help you discover your own unique artist-within while creating works of beauty you will joyfully send out into the world to share.
In this beautiful book, artist Kateri Ewing, author of Look Closer, Draw Better, guides you through a series of simple creative projects using a soulful, meditative, and reflective process. Whether you’re picking up a paint brush for the first time or are an experienced artist, you’ll discover and deepen your creative potential through these exercises, because everyone can make art. Each project results in two art pieces: one to keep for yourself, and then another one, such as a postcard or mini painting, to share with someone else or send out into the world, to spread their color, creativity, and joy in new places.
With Watercolor Is for Everyone, you can learn how to build a daily practice and how to set intentions and create, even if you have just 10 minutes a day. The projects draw inspiration from poetry, music, literature, and the natural world, and invite experimentation with a variety of sources, from tarot and oracle cards to rocks and feathers. You’ll pursue your personal passions through accessible projects as you build your artistic skills, confidence, and creativity.
From the Book:
LESSON TWENTY FREE FLOW
The element of chance is something to celebrate when it comes to watercolor. No other medium can capture the fluid magic we can achieve when we allow the paints to run together, dance, and mingle. In this lesson we are going to use a new tool, the common drinking straw. I keep a drinking straw in my jar of paint brushes for when I want to breathe the winds of change into my paintings. I think you will find a beautiful sort of freedom in this technique.
