Colour Therapy

First of all let me mention, drawing has never been my forte... The only pictures that I can draw well are ones with brown hills, a river, one or two trees and a sun behind the hills... Maybe some women filling water near the river... That's about it... I can't colour... Like a child's, my drawings have colours running out of the lines.. In other words, I am hopeless at drawing...

When I was a kid, my handwriting was just aweful... So when the time came when I would have to switch from pencil to using pens at school, amma put me in a drawing class... My drawings are still horrendous, but my handwriting improved immensely...

So coming back to my drawing skills, I realized there was something quite therapeutic about drawing and colouring.. Well atleast if no one else was gonna see my drawings that is... And most of all, I find that when I am nervous or bored, somehow just drawing polygons and circles and filling them with colours even if it is on MS Paint helps a lot.. I don't know how that works, but somehow, it does seem to work.. To lift my spirit...

So here's one such pic... I don't know how it looks.. maybe modern art.. For whatever reasons it looks like a face to me and that's what this pic is called..

For the record, this is probably the first and last MS Paint image I'll put up on my blog..

You know what? For a while there, I thought I was looking at some master piece. Really! No kidding!
Try "Sketch Book Pro" rey...its a good software. Kinda MSPaint advanced you can say.
And its good to draw peaceful things like mountains,sun,river and trees. Calms the mind. What I suggest you is that, draw something like that. Don't worry whether its nice or not. Just scan it and try puttin on the colors in photoshop. I bet it'll rock. Just try a few variations and all rey. Painting and drawing is easy if you have the feel at the moment. Google for Abstract Art. You'll be filled with new ideas. :)
The pic is really nice..

Thanx Ajan, but actually it was just to put up an example of what my mind-calming color therapy looks like. Just make up circles and polygons and fill them with colors, that really helps in my case.. [:)]
