Simple Shape, Plenty of Expression

Circle #1, by Peony and Parakeet

I began to create these circles a while ago. They have been created in Photoshop but they use scanned elements of my hand drawn art. The message here is: don’t wait for a major inspiration or grand idea! Your starting point can be one simple shape. Self-expression does not require complex sketching.

Creating an art journal page is easy:
1) Draw a circle.
2) Doodle inside it.
3) Color the page. You can add more details while coloring.

When creating this page, I was thinking about spring. It is amazing how the sun and rain take turns and make everything flourish.

  1. All your pictures were beautiful as I scrolled down and then my eyes flew open wide and I opened my mouth to say OHHHHH. That gorgeous glassy bubble laying in the mossy meadow with floors reflected on its surface, is just breathtaking. I can’t wait to begin class – I know from your other videos that I always learn something so the anticipation is a wonderful feeling.

    1. Mary, thanks! I am glad you liked these! There will be not only exercises but also motivational videos which will use more dramatic approach! I hope you will enjoy all of them! I have gathered and edited material for this workshop from last fall so this has been a long journey!

  2. WOW! I can’t wait to start this class. I’ve already learnt a lot from your bogs and ‘101’. I think you really understand how people learn and develop.
