For me i discovered, that intuitiv painting is a good way to
express me and to become peaceful in my mind, especially when
I'm feeling sad or unsatisfied. But not only bad feelings should be
a motivation to paint intuitively. Joy is a very good starting point
to grab my wacom. Sometimes in my life i experienced a situation
of "don't know what to do or to feel or what is good for me". A per-
fect helplessness. In those unwanted situation a intuitiv painting
session helped me to find a new point to went to another better direction.
What is intuition? I try to give a short explanation. Intuition is the
ability to act spontaneously on impulse that comes from your mind.
Simply said listen to your heart or look into your heart or feel what
comes out of your heart. You know your inner voice?
Now i want to explain how to paint intuitively. I talk about feelings as
a motivation to paint. In this forum there is another very good thread
about painting feelings. The main difference from my to the other thread
is intuitiv painting means paint what you feel (or your inner voice telling you)
whileyou are painting. In the other thread the people decided
to paint a feeling before they begin to paint. And it maybe that they
have other feelings while painting as that what they decided to paint.
How to begin?
First, save some time for you.
It's good to have a silence room. You can listen to your favorite music,
no problem(not too loud).
Start your Artrage. (if your pc is out of order,grab paper and pencils)
You think you are a bad painter? It doesn't matter.
You stare to the large white and empty area on your screen and don't
know what to paint? Well, anything is allowed. Use the brush (or what
else you want to use) and paint in the color that comes first in your mind.
Look at that and try to feel, what you want to do next.
You hate that and want to throw it away? No problem, clean the sheet
and begin again (only if you want).
Try to focus your mind to the present. Thoughts of your past and future
are not important...for now.
Do some paint actions.
Look at that and try to feel.
Paint what you feel.
Feel what you are painting...
Let it flow out of your mind...
The most important thing are your experiences while painting.
Below you find some paintings i've done intuitively.
I wish you a lot of inspiration.
