It’s Day 1 at the Art2Life destination Workshop in Morocco, and it’s hot! But we’re excited and just getting going using only black and white paint. It’s the best way to train your eye to see design very clearly. It’s easy to notice differences: what’s light, what’s dark, what’s big, what’s small, what’s rough, and what’s smooth.

Take a look…

As I walk around, it’s so cool to notice how different everyone’s boards are! It’s a great reminder that when you paint from a place of self, your art can’t help but be uniquely yours and that makes it powerful. Give this exercise a try, because if you can create good work using only black and white, adding color and texture will make it even stronger.

Do you work in black and white to improve your design skills? I’d love to hear in the comments.

This week’s episode of the Art2Life Podcast is about my friend, scientist, and award-winning author, Dawson Church. He’s an amazing researcher who blends neuroscience with intense firsthand experience to show you how you can rewire your brain for happiness! He’ll share how to optimize your brain to get into the creative state and flow. Listen and watch this Wednesday; you’re going to love him.
