#AOPaintingParty - Day 1

Bonnie Kuhl

Posted on June 18 2018

Day 1: Fill an entire page in your sketchbook with leaves. 

Welcome to day 1 of the 5 day Painting Party! It wouldn't be an Archer and Olive party without plenty of leaves. 

It wasn’t until a few years after college that I began painting regularly. Believe it or not, I did not enjoy my painting class in college. The pressure of having to create multiple pieces in a short time frame was more stressful than enjoyable. I swore off painting for a long time! Once I was out of school, and creating again on my own terms, I decided to pick up a brush again. It was magical! Painting became my source for calming anxiety, rather than creating it. Painting the same shapes over and over again was incredibly therapeutic. Let your worries melt away as you fill an entire page with leaves.  

Don't forget to post your layouts on Instagram with the #AOpaintingparty. This party is open to participants world wide!

You could win today's awesome giveaway - A Golden Leaf Sketchbook:
