New Book Cover!-Terry Runyan Creative

New Book Cover!

I’m so excited to share the cover of my new book, Painting Happiness: Creativity with Watercolors. 

The book will on the shelves in April 2022 and can be pre-ordered now! 

https://www.quartoknows.com/books/9780711270565/Painting-Happiness.html

In this simple and vibrant guide we explore the art of watercolor through the lens of mindfulness, presenting activities and projects which you can paint along with as you allow your creative side to flourish.

This watercolor guide is easy and accessible for beginners or anyone who wants to delve into the basics of the art form, starting with simple techniques which you can follow along with, as well as presenting some fun projects ideas for painters to explore.

Some of the fun projects include: turning blobs into birds; creating wild hairstyles; and experimenting with different prompts to paint at least one thing a day. From technical skills and notes on materials to insight into the creative process, this book has everything you need to start exploring and experimenting with watercolor!

Alongside beautiful examples of the techniques and styles explored in the book, I also encourage readers to practice mindfulness as they paint, and explore the ways art can be used to help improve mental clarity. Exploring the idea of 'perfectly imperfect watercolors', emphasis is placed on self-expression and allowing yourself to play, make mistakes, learn and grow.
