The Daily Ease – Colouring Book

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 ….
