Watercolor Therapy

“Visual Imagery” is a medical/psychological term used as a way of relaxation for patients confined at the hospital or at home. It helps patients to relax, diverting their attention from sensations of pain to a mode of relaxation by watching a beautiful and colorful image such as photographs and paintings. I believe a watercolor painting is a good source of a beautiful image. Its bright and intense colors attract a viewer’s attention. Its transparency and luminous style can help to ease one’s view. Through its simplicity, it calms our mind and our thought process.  Especially if the subject of a watercolor painting is scenery, flowers, still life, landscapes and cityscapes. No wonder, some of the hospital rooms has a painting of a still life or a landscape to help patients recover through a quiet and peaceful environment. As a registered nurse and as an artist, I believe that watercolor painting is a good example of a visualization therapy and should be placed at hospital walls, wards and private rooms.
