Art Tutorials & Mindfulness

Hello and thanks for visiting my blog! I’m Cecilie Okada, a Norwegian illustrator, designer of decorative art, and a keen meditator. 

Enjoy free step-by-step watercolor, coloring and drawing tutorials. You don’t need any prior experience, just a desire to explore. Pick up a brush, colored pencils or markers and let loose. Many of the tutorials come with free line art to print out and trace. They are accessible in the One Tree Art Club library (link in blog posts). And remember- creative flow is a state of mindfulness. More about me.
