A brighter painting approach this June with Calder Graphics in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire

Bright coloured leafy greens, woodland dappled with light and shade - hard to imagine really when we are in the final throws of Winter right now.

  1. Trying out different painting styles might help you figure out what makes you feel particular emotions like happiness, sadness, love, or anger. The feelings you have while making this work can often be projected onto those who watch your artwork. Painters have the capacity to provide joy to others by sharing their optimistic outlook with their audience. Painters are better company for themselves and people around them when they have this skill. While painting may not provide much in the way of physical exercise, the cognitive benefits to overall health are enormous. Given all of the positive aspects of this artistic pursuit, it is apparent that painting promotes good mental health in people of all ages. Taking up painting creates a positive attitude in the artist as well as those around them. Get township: farm & city building or breed your magical dragons, build your dragon city here.
