All tasks requires some form of concentration, even tasks that are habits like eating. If your concentration dips while eating, you may drop your fork or bite yourself. With art, if you get distracted while creating your master piece, you may pick up wrong color or apply color to the wrong spot. While it is true, there are no mistakes in art. There are things we would really like to hide.
Today’s Art of Concentration is the double swirl. One swirl it going clockwise, the other swirl is going counter clockwise. It maybe a little more complicated then yesterday’s swirl. Yes, it does look like a flower.
The rules are:
- Draw black lines on a page. Circles, squares, squiggly lines, it does not matter.
- Color every other section. Start anywhere.
- If you desire, use multiple colors. Sections of the same color can not touch.
