Once you have been a book blogger for a while, you have many options for books to review. I chose The Color Meditation Deck because I want to remove the stress of using the new watercolor supplies that I received for Mother’s Day.
What stress could water coloring cause? I have a fear of failing. If my painting doesn’t look like something that should be auctioned at Christie’s, I’m going to be disappointed.
Enter this book into my life. It gives prompts for subjects and restricts your choices further by providing parameters for your artwork. For example, your subject is dots, and your parameter is to use a limited number of colors. Or to work with shades and tints of a single hue. It’s a genius solution for artist’s block. Just to get you started. Since I don’t meditate, I can’t tell you if it works for meditation, but it definitely makes me feel less stressed while I am painting my way through the book’s prompts.
Overall, The Color Meditation Deck is a great way for aspiring artists to begin their journey and for existing artists to break out of a rut. 4 stars!
Thanks to Roost Books and NetGalley for a digital review copy of the book.
