Getting my groove back

I’ve been struggling to get my muse back for months now. No amount of pleading, heckling, and bribing could lure her back into my life. I feel spent and empty. Today I decided to take on a different approach: instead of hitting myself on the head, I followed the instructions I normally give to my students when they first start learning how to paint. I cleaned my room, set up my space, and tried my best to get into a creative mood.

I did watercolor exercises the whole day to try to loosen up my brain. I used watercolor artist Lorraine Watry’s videos as a guide.

Then I filled my Moleskine watercolor journal with images of my cat. I’ll share more when I feel more confident about them ;o)

I still have a long way to go, but I think I’m on the road to getting my groove back. 🙂

Okay, break time is over! 🙂

Doodles

Tsk, tsk, tsk. This little art tutor was caught doodling while teaching! ;o) It’s okay, though, because our topic was sketching and my students enjoyed seeing how my doodles evolved. Yeah, yeah. ;o)
