In my last post I wrote about the strong need to drawing I was feeling during the week, without having the time to satisfy it.
Well, yesterday something changed. My fiancè had a high temperature and all our projects for the weekend stopped. While sitting near S. in bed to help him, I decided to draw.
I had no idea about what to draw. I simply started coloring three pages in my moleskine watercolor journal with watercolor pencils. Then I started to work, following what my imagination was suggesting me, line after line.
I worked on two pages: I realized two landscapes of imaginary worlds.
This is the first one, before...
... and after!
An imaginary world where you can find a lot of my favourite things: birds, clouds, flowers, butterflies&dragonflies, funny animals like sheeps and rabbits, water, the moon and buildings with strange roofs.
I like how some parts came out.
I'm particularly proud of the sheeps:
And the moon, too!
After this landscape I made the second one (I'll write a post about it tomorrow), but I was too tired to finish also the third page I had prepared.
After about two hours of intense and meticolous drawing I experimented a strange and positive sensation: my brain was lighter.
I feel like I've opened the windows of my brain and, drawing, moved away dirty thoughts to enter clean air!
It's something I haven't experimented before. I'm understanding that I probably need to express myself with drawings more than I've imagined in the past.
Drawing probably is not only a funny activity, but a healthy practice for my brain and soul.
Can you understand me? Did you feel something like this practicing art?
