Recently I wrote a paper for a class where I talked about making art as a spiritual practice. The original idea was keeping a journal; I modified it into an art journal and this image of three flames burning is from the journal. It was drawn with Chinese ink and a stick, with a bit of watercolour pencil crayons added for colour.
I’m hoping to teach an art journal course for adults in January at Place des Arts and working in my own right now is helping me to prepare for it. I appreciate how approaching a sketchbook as a visual diary can free up your imagination and be a place to capture fleeting ideas for further exploration later.
