The art of colouring – L’art du coloriage

Colouring is in, and said to be therapeutic and distressing. It is true as any art practice.

The advantage of colouring is that it is for every one. No experience or savoir-faire needed. It is very liberating, you can let go your imagination, play with colour, enter in yourself .

Then, when the session is finished, you can pin it proudly on your fridge door and when  looking at it you will go back to that inner peace felt during the exercise.

Le coloriage est à la mode, on lui trouve, avec raisons, des valeurs thérapeutiques, déstressante. Et c’est exact comme toute pratique d’un art.

L’avantage du coloriage c’est qu’il est à la portée de tous, ne demande aucune expérience ni savoir faire. C’est trés libérateur, on peut laisser partir son imagination, jouer avec la couleur, rentrer dans son monde intérieur.

Puis, une fois la séance finie, on peut accrocher fièrement son coloriage sur la porte du frigo et en le regardant retrouver  cette paix intérieur ressentie pendant l’exercice.

  1. Ces dessins m’inspire trop. (Does that make sense in French?!)

    I love your coloring book images. They make a person want to put colors down, and that can be a wonderful thing in itself. Alternately, sometimes it makes one want to learn to draw. Probably the things that got me drawing when I was a child were well-drawn coloring book pictures. Yours are so marvelous, so full of life. True drawing. Dessiner authentique.

    What cheering Christmas delights.

  2. These are wonderful. I have been given a full set of pencils, gels and 3 colouring books and a postcard set. They are great for calming me down during online meetings 🙂
