No 44 – Instead of adult colouring books – Fabric Colouring-in Design – Idea No 9 – freehand drawing – geometric patterns: squares

No, geometric patterns don’t have to be boring!

Dear friends of Your Colourful Mind,

Creating freehand drawings “with the help of geometric shapes” might not sound very exciting, but it actually offers a lot of easiness and fun!

So far, we have used circles (see posts No 41 and No 42) and triangles (post No 43) to demonstrate

How geometric patterns can help us to get started with freehand drawing and painting on fabric.

Today’s project examples again support our view that using geometric patterns not only gives us an easy start by offering first design ideas:

Using geometric shapes also helps us to overcome our fear of not being good enough, or of not really being creative/artistic.

The decision to focus on just one kind of geometric patterns reduces uncertainties and fear because it gives our creativeness a frame, and guidance.

Playing around with one chosen geometric pattern,

  • drawing it in different sizes, styles and shapes,
  • arranging it more or less spontaneously in different ways,
  • and then colouring it in the way WE like it,

helps us to develop unique and colourful designs, and, by doing so, to experience how successfully creative we actually are.

The positive experience strengthens confidence and trust in our abilities!

 

Today, we focus on another geometric shape, – the square.

Next time (Post No 46) we will see that

the permanently increasing confidence in our abilities lets us experiment with more courage, – which means with even more creativity.

  1. Hallo,
    ich hatte länger nicht auf Ihrer Webseite vorbeigeschaut und bin ganz überrascht wieviele neue Ideen für Stoffmalerei Sie inzwischen präsentiert haben.
    Hier gefällt mir das T-Shirt mit den bunt ausgemalten Kästchen am besten! Ich werde mir Textil-Stifte besorgen und etwas ähnliches versuchen.
    Danke für Ihre Vorschläge.
    Viele Grüsse,
    B Lange
