Mixed Media Art Therapy Sketch

Bright Life

Good morning everyone. This is just a catch up of the quick art therapy watercolour sketches that I do in my sketchbooks. Actually, this particular one took a little bit longer, as I wanted to add more after the initial twenty minutes or so. Well, I made some shapes and colours with my travel watercolour set, which I keep very handy in my living room. And, I usually do this when I have gone a whole day without arty activities! In fact, it never fails to lighten my mood, however I’m feeling. So, I consider it a very useful way to look after my mental wellbeing. Also, it is almost entirely stress free because I make no demands on myself as regards the quality of the work. And, it’s purely experimenting and, of course, you need not show it to anyone, unless you choose to. Perhaps you could try this easy art therapy sometime! And let me know how you get on.

Anyway, after the first pass, I put the little sketchbook on the table till next day. And looked at it a lot. Then I strengthened the yellow,green and brownish red with oil pastel. Next I doodled a bit with marker pen and white gel pen to bring it together. And, it definitely cheered me up!

Finally, this is another another quick piece done to calm my nerves and I did this in one pass and left it as it was. If you want to see more, have a look at this post here.

    1. Thank you so much, Felipe. I think the main point about doing these quick pieces is that it doesn’t matter what they look like and it really frees you up.

      1. Very true, Margaret 😊 The few times I let myself do something similar, they work so well it’s usually better work than what I’d been doing, lol! Happy accidents sorta I guess, but it sure works & sure shows ❤️

    1. Thank you so much, Claudia, I really appreciate the support. Blogging brings us artists together and I love it!

    1. I’m glad that you feel that art does you good. I’m sure that there are lots of artists who think like we do.
