Paint from Your Heart

 I recently held my “Paint from Your Heart” intuitive painting workshop in my studio. 

I had 7 ladies in total. Only three had ever painted before. 

I was blown away by the results. We started by making doodles in black. Then added a layer of warm tones using a variety of mark making tools. Then a layer of cool colours was added. The result is creative chaos. 

From this, as a group project, we looked for imagery in the mark making. Everyone sees something different but it is up to the individual artist to make the final decision to take the work to completion.  

The painting is developed by using transparent and opaque layers. 6 out of 7 of these paintings were created without the use of any photo reference other than the imagination.

If you are interested in taking the workshop it is running again on may 11th.

      Thanks Wendy!They did a great job and worked through their fear and

      They all turned out to be very individual. I think the big canvas was a bit daunting but lends itself well to the playfulness of this way of painting. Would love to have you join in when the time is right.
