Sometimes my sketchbooks look outwards and capture the world around me. Sometimes they look inwards and I call these my 'soulscapes'. They are usually inspired by nature but in a way that connects to the symbolism of what is around us, birds, journeying and ideas of connection through tapping in to nature's beat - I use moon, stars, sun, trees to express ideas and affirmations. I combine words and pictures and often work with a naive, playful style.
In this short online course, I take you through the steps I use to work intuitively and create a mixed-media soulful sketchbook with paint, pen, and collage. Find hope and joy in your creative practice and create with your authentic voice.
This course is for you:
if you like to work intuitively - following an idea from your imagination
if you like colour and its connection to expressing mood
if you like to combine words and images
if you want to start a sketchbook that is expressive, narrative and colourful
You will end the course with a set of cards that you can swap with other creatives or use to build your own oracle (affirmation) card deck.
You will need:
Access via a PC or laptop to my website where you can access the password protected pages
Broadband wifi with sufficient speed to watch video content

Different drawing media - I suggest a pencil, biro, fine felt-tip pen, posca paint pen (ow whatever you have)
