Maybe it's the colors, 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.
In Drawing Calm, artist Susan Evenson, 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 Evenson teaches how to capture the light and peace of the master painting.
Making use of "soft" techniques such as torn-paper collage, blended pastels, and wet-on-wet watercolor, this workshop encourages stress-free creativity. Put on the music that makes you happy and choose the colors that take you there too!
