How to implement painting as a part of your life and what medium should you start with?

As a child, when we go to the beach, we like to build a sand bunker, filled the center with water and poke a hole for the water to stream out.  As we grow up and become an adult, taking on responsibilities, life becomes more complicated and pressure starts to build up.

A lot of times, we don’t know how to find a way out, because we have no clue the source of our stress and frustration.  Picking up a brush and unleash all your anxiety on to a piece of paper may just do the trick.  Researches have shown that painting is a way to improve your mental and physical health that can improve your overall quality of life.  Knowing how to relieve stress and not let it get the best of you is something we all should learn to achieve.

Trying to put on lipstick while walking ?and or in a moving vehicle will surely be a lot more difficult to do so than in a still position, but in truth it’s actually not because there are vermillion border on our lips, which makes it easier to draw.  

A lot of times if you don’t have a scope of things, it can seem difficult to begin, but once you find your scope and set up an SOP, it will be much easier to follow through.  You can start by coloring with oil pastel/watercolor paint cakes, use anything that you can find around you containing lines and practice coloring.

Acrylic paint is one of the most versatile mediums, and one of the least toxic.  It is water-soluble when wet, it dries quickly and dries into a flexible, water-resistant and durable surface.  It is applicable to many different surfaces such as paper, clothing, mugs, rocks, wood, glass, canvas’ and any rough or glossy surfaces.  Give it try and you will find the joy it can bring you.

We all have our own path and destiny, we are who we are, we don’t need to compare and compete with others, achieve what we set out to do is our greatest success.  Colour Block® wants you to find yourself through painting and creating, lead your own life and not be influenced by other voices.
