The Daily Ease – Colouring Book
I have been working on the front cover of an Alexander Technique inspired colouring book today ….
A few weeks a friend who was feeling low commented that she wished she could draw as it might help her with her anxiety. I suggested she buy a colouring book and it has been a great success for her.
Of course a seed was planted …
An Alexander Technique colouring book, teaching some anatomy, the principles of balance and the brilliance of Alexander’s discoveries in a fun way that the children I teach would enjoy …
So it is underway. Hooray! Feeling excited and motivated by the project and seeing if I can realise some of the ideas I have in the form of a colouring book.
Also today I had a mad incident with colour!
I was asked to paint an oil painting of elephants in greens and blues. I delivered it to the gallery who had commissioned it earlier in the week. This morning I woke to a message saying that the elephants were ‘Too green for Glasgow!’
It is a painting of elephants for goodness sake … Crazy!
However the incident of the green elephants has made me think that I will blog a bit about colour as I create my colouring book.
Colour IS emotive!
And colouring in is enjoyable! I love it!
And the Alexander Technique is wonderful and I think everyone should learn it, especially children and teenagers!
So hopefully my colouring book will combine some of my passions ….
