Overview

Zen Doodling by Carolyn Scrace


Today’s hectic lifestyle can leave us burned out. It’s no wonder that more and more people are engaging in healing activities such as yoga, meditation, and massage. Artistic expression is also a great way to de-stress. Barron’s Zen Doodling, combines the calming benefits of meditation with the soothing effects of drawing for a unique new take on relaxation.

Zen doodling doesn’t require any artistic training, and there’s no need for special tools or equipment. With just a pen and a scrap of paper, many find that the simple repetitive nature of drawing patterns is spiritually rewarding and can boost creative confidence.

Here, professional illustrator and artist, Carolyn Scrace offers simple instructions and tons of beautiful examples that will inspire artists of all levels to get started in this unique art form. You’ll find:

  • A range of exercises from simple patterns using lines and shapes, to more complex mandalas, portraits, and even unique personal alphabets that incorporate depth and color
  • Great ideas for adding a Zen touch to fabric, journals, china, glass, and more
  • Basic lessons on color theory, light and shade, and a helpful glossary of relevant terms

    With down-to-earth language and engaging design, Zen Doodling offers a distinctive approach to artistic creativity, and a method for achieving personal serenity.

    I haven't had a chance to read the book yet, but B&N requested that I review my purchase NOW. So all I can say right now is it looks good on my bookshelf, and B&N's shipping rocks.
