Taking a vacation this summer? Why not turn it into a creative retreat too? It is so easy to do.
Just go to your nearest art, craft, or stationery store and pick up a watercolour sketchbook (such as a Moleskine one). While you're there buy some watercolour paints. You don't have to get anything fancy. A child's paintbox will do.
Also get a water brush that holds water in the handle. They're amazing and fun. Here is what I took on my holiday to the lake.
I bought this plastic paint box a few years ago and squeezed watercolours from tubes into the pans and allowed them to set.
Whiling away the afternoon at a coffee shop, I made this little sketch of a woman eating a brownie. It took about ten minutes to draw and paint.
Don't let your fear of not doing perfect work keep you from being creative.
