A Color Narrative With Danielle Donaldson Begins on Monday!

Only a few more days until Danielle Donaldson’s newest online course, A Color Narrative, begins!

Guys! It is so stunning and the watercolor geodes had me all weepy they are so beautiful!

Danielle is an incredible teacher and the artists in her courses leave so inspired.

A Color Narrative is a one week online course (4+ hours of content) with lifetime access.

The registration price is $48.

Color tells stories and shares emotion in ways words can’t. In our time together, I’ll help you discover the beauty of each color and the stories they are ready to help you share through your art. We’ll begin by learning how to build limited color palettes that travel well and push you to figure out how to create your own beautiful colors. Once we have built our palettes, we’ll learn to mix a plethora of colors with a series of simple questions and adjustments. Next, we’ll work on some exercises that will reveal the importance of composition in storytelling – painting different kinds of watercolor washes with an emphasis on layering techniques and mark-making. We’ll conclude our time together with a pretty give-it-a-spin illustration project that includes a fancy globe filled with color, imagination and a few of your favorite things tucked inside!

Techniques shared: creating and documenting limited color palettes |color confidence-building | watercolor layering studies | start small-finish big composition practice | mechanical pencil mark-making project | give-it-a-spin illustration project

Finding Myself Missing Writing

[Within the past two weeks we have packed up a home, moved outside of town onto acreage, unpacked, started to make a house a home, went to the Daddy Daughter Ball and drank a lot of coffee]

It seems that with the busyness of life, family and business that I don’t choose to write out my thoughts here as often. My free time now may be a late night walk, cuddling up on the couch, sitting with a teen at the kitchen counter or very likely heading to bed early. I am so ok with this change but as I began to type it was surprising how out of practice I have become at writing out my thoughts here.

Nothing has shown me that we are in the next stage of life, marriage and parenthood like this past year. Our home is full of social lives that aren’t mine, beginning stages of so many things that we are still trying to figure out , a business that is growing strong and beautiful and learning how to balance and navigate all of that, children that seem to need us so much more than the ages when we thought they needed us the most and a marriage that has to find its way in the midst of these years. I find myself exhausted some evenings but making the choice to find my way out of the fog to spend time, drive or connect when I thought I had nothing left. This parenting teens and a 9 year old gig is not for the weak of heart yet in the same breath I am totally smitten with their fierce sense of humor, their willingness to talk to me, their hand holding and cuddles when they are willing and seeing glimpses of who they are becoming. It is an exhausting and beautiful privilege and I wouldn’t change it for anything.

My time and energy is spent right where it needs to be but I am also realizing that I still have a deep and strong love of writing and I want to share it outside of just my online courses or live workshops.

I just wanted you to know where I have been and that I would love to find my weekly voice here again in an authentic way that fits my changing days.

Love to you,

Jeanne

 

For those of you that love our online courses I wanted you to know that TODAY is the last day to get the early registration price on Danielle Donaldson’s newest watercolor course All Creatures Lovely and Small.

If you took Scribble Art and loved it (I think that was everyone) you will not want to miss Julie Johnson’s newest online class Making Art Sing!  It begins tomorrow and it is going to be so beautiful and rich!  We would love to have you join us!
