Make a time capsule of your year with watercolor
One Color a Day is a simple and meditative way to visually document each day. Within the book’s orderly gridded layout, you simply paint a daily color and add a word or phrase that reﬂects your current mood, an observation, or an experience. The result is a visually stunning, deeply personal, and totally unique record of a year. One Color a Day begins with an encouraging note to all aspiring creatives, explaining the many beneﬁts of the practice along with a little technical advice about painting with watercolor. Interspersed throughout are spreads with inspiring ideas for choosing your daily color and using it as an opportunity to set an intention or to reﬂect on the different aspects of your life.
