Relax and Unwind with Drawing Calm Artist Book by Susan Evenson – Enter to Win One

This post may contain affiliate links or I may have received the product free in exchange for my honest review. See full disclosure for more information.

Maybe it’s the colors, or the soul-expanding vistas, or maybe it’s just the idea that harmony can exist on a single square of canvas, but there is something in art that makes it both calming and inspiring at the same time. Drawing Calm teaches artists and non-artists alike how to find an oasis of calm every day by using the work of master painters to inspire personal creativity. I love this book! With restful, but dynamic works of art as a starting point, Susan Evenson teaches readers how to capture the light and peace of the master painters, using iconic pieces for inspiration. The point is not to try to copy the master works, but to let them guide the reader/artist on a journey to calm and inner peace.
