I've only drawn a couple of one line drawings and I don't remember liking them too much. This lesson actually gave me the confidence to try again. I am happy with the result. I only used watercolor to paint my drawing and to apply a wash on my "List of When Things Suck". I may do more of these one line drawings in the future but paint them with acrylics.
Chapter 1 of The Inner Child ends with a meditation where you envision a garden that symbolizes your past and the revision of the images at each stage that we will examine as we work with our inner children within. This image will be continuously worked with throughout the healing process of the inner child. Here is the beginning of my garden painting.
This work comes from prompts found at Free Your Inner Child which happens to be a free e-course. I combined prompts from day 1 and day 2 to create my mixed media piece of art. I always loved to make costumes, dress up, and play pretend. I based my piece on this.
This year I have decided to work on my inner child. I have several resources to guide my way through this process including The Inner Child Workbook. I have a journal to take notes and write about the suggested exercises. There are also suggested art prompts as you can see below..... my first art piece, a collage....... "Responsible Adults/Parents". My printer was running low on ink but I rolled with it and used the blue pictures as my jumping point for the color palette. As I mentioned before, I have other resources and some art pieces on canvas that I will be sharing along my journey this year.
