If you’re looking for a quick art exercise to do to relax, these colourful dots are are both beautiful and simple to create. Pretty straight forward… grab your water colour and dot away.
Lisa talks about these exercises as ‘colour meditations.’ If you find you’re feeling stressed or just need some thing to do to calm your mind, this will do the trick!
Come to think of it these pieces remind me of those stick on ear rings they made when I was little. They were sparkly and came in difference shapes, like moon, circle, triangle, flowers. Do you remember these???

I like the idea of colour meditation!!
Thanks for commenting Sandra. I read a book titled ‘Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain’ by Betty Edwards that you might be interested in. She explains that a shift occurs in the brain whilst we create art, that we move from logical to intuitive and imaginative functions of the brain which alters our perception of time and we move into a state of presence and flow. This description sounds like mediation/mindfulness to me!!
Wow, I’ll check it out. Thanks!
That sounds so relaxing! I might try it today. You can also see color theory in that when you finish and see the dots.
Hi Owen, I love that you will try this… agreed! I learn so much about colour when i do these exercises! X
