Black line and complimentary colors

” A line is a dot that went for a walk.” Paul Klee

I love to doodle! Doodling is probably the easiest form of meditation there is and anyone can do it and enjoy it. I firmly believe it also builds muscle memory so that your drawing can become more fluid.

In today’s video, we took a line for a walk and learned about color theory. This activity is really simple, fun and you can even make a game out of it. I created an Upside Down Color by Number game, where the colors for each object in the picture are left up to the roll of the dice! This might be harder than you think if you have a hard time coloring grass orange or the sky green, but it will definitely help to open your imagination and introduce you to a new way of seeing the world around you.

Artists like Vincent van Gogh and Paul Gaugin were part of les Fauves (wild beasts), an art movement of the early 20th century. Their canvases, although representational (real things/people) were more concerned with strong, complimentary coloes and painterly qualities like thick paint strokes.
