Mindfulness means the awareness that arises from paying attention in a particular way, on purpose, in the present, and non-judgmentally (Jon Kabat – Zinn 1990)
I begin with meditation, I then draw usually with my eyes closed. I focus on the charcoal, the sound of it moving around the paper and the movement of my hand. I colour later. The simplest of processes, yet the most effective both mentally and visually. With my eyes closed, I am not self critical.
