I have found a new love in life for yoga. Similar to sketching it takes you away from your mind chatter and makes you focus on what is happening in the moment. I managed to take some time out on my first yoga retreat to sketch a beautiful summer scene near a lake.
There were so many shades of greens from the trees in the foreground and the fields in the background set against an amazing blue sky. I tried my best to simplify and build up my sketch with watercolour slowly. The first pass when painting watercolour never looks great but the key to is to have the patience to see it through and not give up. I am glad I didn’t as my final sketch turned out okay.
I also enjoy sketching yoga poses as it’s a fun way to learn a pose as well as combine my two favourite hobbies together!
