It’s our first week of sheltering in place here in the Bay Area. I know I’m not alone with going in and out of feeling stressed –– my mind swirling and racing with all that’s happening now, and the ripple effects yet to come.
So, this newsletter is dedicated to three ways you can stay calm with drawing.
1. Drawing slowly is meditative. Grab a few blue markers, turn a piece of paper to landscape, and fill it with slow, horizontal lines. Here’s a 2 minute video where I show you what I mean!
In this video below, I’m using a blue Charters marker and a light blue Neuland “Big One” marker. I recommend using any marker in cool colors: blues, greys, bluish-greens –– they’re more calming, they recede.
