My drawing and painting life
Long working day. I took up the lesson of the week in the wonderful year- long series of lessons “LifeBook 2015” hosted by Tamara Laporte. Week 47 was a lesson on intuitive painting, by Chris Zydell, a lady with a good idea about what intuitive painting is and a most wonderful smile. 🙂
This is the work that resulted from 30 minutes of working without much of a plan and just enjoying the process.
It was an interesting process. Though we were asked to just play, of course during the drawing and painting some kind of plan turns up.
I can’t shut up the mind for long. I start to think about composition, color schemes and things like that. Not a problem. Like Chris Zydell says: “You can notice things that come up and move on.” So I still try to stay in the moment and play with ideas that come up and I try not to think about results too much. I think about colors that might fit together. I wonder what layering watercolor on top of pencil will look like. I just add more wavy lines, until there are too much. I paint over dry bits and over bits that are still wet. Oh, it starts to flow. Ah well. Tomorrow there’s another day, isn’t here?
Well in that case, let’s just add a bit of splatter. We’ll see how that looks and how it will dry? Dark splatter, red paint splatter. Yeah! It looked better when wet. Ah well…. you know the line by now, don’t you?
