A watercolour painting course that goes hand-in-hand with mindfulness practice!
Soul Color is a ten-week watercolour painting course to cultivate mindfulness and creativity. This beautiful book will teach you how to enjoy watercolour painting as a contemplative practice for self-discovery.
Develop confidence to paint more intuitively, give yourself permission to enjoy the unexpected and make mistakes, deepen your meditation skills and discover a new sense of reflective calm.
An art teacher with over 15 years’ experience, Emma Burleigh shares her knowledge through workshops and courses. Her specialty is mindful watercolour helping others expand their skills as artists while also taking them on a peaceful journey within.
Soul Color isn’t a traditional ‘how to’ book. It is the outcome of several years of research, trial and error with students and friends who’ve come to Emma’s workshops and classes to explore this territory with her.
“I have never seen a book that offers both instruction in an art medium, in this case, watercolor, and thoughtful prompts for using the medium to know self, soul and imagination so successfully. Process and product are seamlessly joined in this beautiful book. Emma Burleigh has generously demonstrated her skill through the exquisite illustrations while giving us the clear and simple how-to directions to achieve our own authentic expression” – Pat B Allen
