Create something every day

Create something every day

Yesterday, I had a short workshop in the Family Corner at Falsterbo Horse Show on how to draw animals. My audience, two girls, asked me the best way to improve. My answer is simple: practice! And not only what you already know, new things that you haven’t tried before! Create something new every day. Big or small. With whatever tools you like.

I tend to use my camera, or just doodle something, and to help myself think in new ways I joined the Boho Berry Challenge this month. I have already shown some of my work on Instagram and FB, but wanted to just give an idea of how my mind works and how I thought about some of the challenges so far:

It would be easy to show a selection of the tools I use, pens, colors, stickers, and so on. But as I thought about it, I realized that this is the real truth.
I love ferns, I love green, I love patterns, and I love simplicity.
These two figures came to me last year, and they are supposed to be me and Midori. I really like them, they are easy to draw and to give different expressions. My style.
I thought about picking some flowers and glue on to the “nature” page, but I don’t do that normally. So I drew some of my favorite shapes instead: Poppy, butterfly and some kind of seed (maybe barley?) I actually love the whale. Something blue immediately got my mind into the water, and to me, blue symbolizes freedom and loneliness as well.
I’ve moved almost all my watercolors to my new house but had two small sets left. I love to use watercolor!
And some of my handwriting. Read the quote. Think about it.

Now go out, and create something today!
