Painting Art in the Garden

This is part two of an article I started called Creating Art in the Garden which you can read by clicking the image below

After spending an afternoon drawing a mandala while sat in a lovely shady spot on the garden, I decided to take my paints out the next day and get some colour added.

This is actually the first time I’ve painted in the garden and it certainly won’t be my last as I loved it!

Here’s a list of items I took out with me:

  • Watercolour paint palette
  • Paint brushes
  • Water pot
  • Gold Gouache tube
  • Waterproof black fine-liner pen 0.05 nib size

I still took my inspiration from the Rose of Sharon flowers which were right next to where I sat. The colours I used were:

  • Cadmium Yellow (Windsor Newton)
  • Alizarin Crimson (Windsor Newton)
  • Hooker’s Green (Windsor Newton)
  • Phthalo Green Light (Sennelier)
  • Gold (Winsor Newton Designers Gouache)

Here’s my finished Mandala

Hi, I’m Sarah Cornforth and I'm a Creatrix of Magick.  I have never really considered myself creative or artistic as I'm too much of a perfectionist for that and I still find it hard to accept the word ‘artist’ as a title for myself. Initially creating art was a way of coping with the curveballs of life. When I draw, or paint or craft I feel calmer, my mind slows down to a pace I can cope with and life becomes easier. I also love working closely with the phases of the moon and the cycles of nature in everything I do as the benefits are huge. At the end of 2017 a dear friend nudged me in the direction of creating art to sell, and if it had been anyone else who encouraged me I would have thought they were mad. But this particular friend has a special gift. She can see the life purpose of others. So I listened and I took every piece of advice she had to give me.....and here I am, creating art, working with the Moon, teaching people how to heal through Mandala art, feeling happy and sharing what I love with the world. Thank you for joining me on this journey.
