"Photography is an immediate reaction, drawing is a meditation." -Henri Cartier-Bresson
I always find it fun to draw water droplets:
And I love to draw these water droplets in all shapes and forms. I find it therapeutic. It is not difficult. If I can do it, anybody can do it. Click here to know how you can learn how to draw with pencil too.
There are thousands of ways to implement mindfulness exercises. My favorite one is drawing and sketching. It is kind of fulfilling and satisfying.
When I posted that we should draw to elevate our mindfulness state of consciousness and demonstrated my drawing, many people appreciated it but they also pointed out that not everybody can draw. But then, I am also not an artist and I can draw! I took it as a personal challenge to prove that if I can draw, anybody can draw.
So, I made this video to prove that how easy it is to pick up a pencil and start drawing. Follow it up and, believe me, you are going to surprise yourself and your loved ones by the end result.
Watch the video below that I created last week.
Still not convinced? Ok, Watch the video below. This video went viral at one of the Ted show presentation.
I watched above video accidentally and was surprised that somebody other than me also has the same idea as me and he is proving the idea, that anybody can draw, much more authoritatively than me. I watch the above video up to the end and was very impressed. Although, I draw to do my mindfulness exercises, please point your way for doing mindfulness exercises.
Finally, keep and eye on my blog as I will share many more drawing ideas in future through my YouTube Channel.
“...and then, I have nature and art and poetry, and if that is not enough, what is enough?” ― Vincent van Gogh
Let your heart absorb nature. Art takes nature as its model. You will get the best inspirations from nature. Nature is the art work of God. Use your creativity and imagination to give a tweak to God's art work to create your own piece of art. Believe me, you don't need to be great artist to create your own piece of art. I always insist that process of creating art is nothing less than meditation.
I once got inspired by colorful shining Paua Shells which are found only in the pacific sea around New Zealand. These Paua Shells inspire me so much that I started using them in my art and the result was great.
A few of my creations are shown below:
Go to sea side, climb mountains, explore the bush walks, absorb the gentleness of the jungle and you will be surprised how greatly the nature will inspire you.
Feel the vastness of the Universe
Let your imagination go wild. This will help you create the most innovative piece of art.
Below, I imagined the motion of the black hole and loved it.
