Sarah, You're entirely Welcome!

Wow, I just read your piece on TD in prison....Incredible. I will definitely be following the process, thank you.

 

As far as using other materials, I tend to stay with either the black or sienna oil paints for Touch Drawing. But I have experimented with quite a few materials after mounting them. My favorite is to mount the drawings on plywood and then embellish the drawings with just a hint of either watercolor or pastels. I then embellish some of the pieces with found objects from nature: sticks, pebbles, shells, sea glass, etc. Each piece is entirely different, but because I like the primal and etheral feel of Touch Drawing...I tend to stay with earth tones & materials.

THANKS, TANYA!!! I POSTED A SHORT STORY ABOUT USING TD IN PRISON - I GUESS THE IMPACT IS PRETTY UNIVERSAL BUT SINCE INCARCERATED WOMEN HAVE SO VERY LITTLE GOING ON IN THE WAY OF MEANINGFUL/HELPFUL COUNSELING, ETC, THE CHANCE TO SIT WITH IMAGES THAT ARISE FROM THEIR OWN SOUL AND WRITE TO/FROM/ABOUT THE IMAGES AS WELL AS THE EXPERIENCE OF THEIR EMERGENCE . . . IS NOTHING SHORT OF INCREDIBLE.

 

THANKS TOO FOR YOUR WARM WORDS OF WELCOME. AND SINCE YOU INVITE - HAVE YOU EXPERIENCE USING OTHER INKS/PAINTS? AN ARTIST FRIEND RECOMMENDS USING AKUA INTAGLIO INK. THOUGHTS?

Hi Sarah...I'm so sorry for the delay in response. Of course you can use the images and I sincerely hope they are helpful in some small way. I absolutely believe in the infinite possibilities available through the process of Touch Drawing. It is extremely exciting to see the growth & development throughout our community. Welcome! And if there is anything I can do to assist in any way, please do not hesitate to contact me. Good Luck and please keep us posted.

VERY POWERFUL images, Tanya. Thanks for sharing - these are so inspiring. May I share two or three with the women in my writing community? We are going to experiment with TD for the first time in two weeks - I think it would help them visualize some of the possibilities . . . As you can tell (!) I'm new to the TD process and community. Haven't yet found my TD 'voice' so to speak!!!
