Hands at work

Updated: Nov 25, 2019

Day 12 of #marchmeetthemaker.

Below is a video of my hands - and eyes! - at work while drawing on location in South Africa back in 2017. It's like they’re locked in contest - who can work the fastest? 😆


In fact, I believe drawing is very much about using your body, mind and soul, and surrendering to the fact that neither one is completely in charge of the result. Which is probably why drawing feels like meditation, at least to me! Do you recognize this meditative quality? How do you practice mindfulness?
