So what is intuitive painting, well that’s the greatest fun. When you don’t think too much, just get out a few tubes and apply them randomly on your project. Here I chose acrylics, wanted to have some warm colours, so I ended up with cadmium yellow hue deep, permanent green and mauve. I applied them with an old credit card to cover up the text in my altered book.
I loved how the text peeked through here and there (the advantage of working in an altered book). I wanted some more abstract textures, so I added some stamping with Finnabair’s clear texture stamp and watering can archival ink.
When I looked at my spread with the warm colours, especially that it is cold and grey outside, the first thing that jumped into my mind how lucky I am that I have a warm sweet home and a lovely supporting son. So decision made, it is going to be a city scape. And there came the third layer, forming my old fashioned and futuristic architectural creations:
Finally I added some doodles with black and white gel pen and some shadows and shades with charcoal. The downtown city is stamped with archival ink.
I really enjoyed spreading the paint without thinking too much, and then just to form shapes that slowly get into objects. Why don’t you give it a try?
