Key areas in the Intuitive Painting Workshop:

Intuitive Painting Journey

A transformational painting experience, allowing yourself to set yourself free to play, breathe, reflect, wonder and journey with colors and marks. You will learn automatic drawing, mark-making, color-values and composition, to create abstract paintings that you may fall in love with very much.

 

Automatic drawing/markmaking

In the initial part of getting into the flow and connection with paintings, you will be playing with the simple color contrast of black and white and all the nuances between, grey color values.
Working with simplicity and color limitations, you will get a deeper understanding of the power of constraints; learning that “Less is More”. There is a meditative state like in zen-art that you will have an opportunity to explore and integrate on a deeper level.
Sometimes the starts of paintings are the part we love the most, because it has lots of freedom, and playfulness, before the mind comes in to make conscious choices about the next step in the painting process.
Many artist keep their paintings “simple”, leaving them raw, real and filled with LIFE.

Example of finished painting

When you learn about color values, you will have a great tool in your hands for create an ultimate understanding of all the spectrum of nuances that come with keeping a simple palette/limiting the palette to a very few colors.

This is a painting where the concept “Breathing Space” is very visible.
The colors are allowed space in composition, creating feelings of expansion and lightness.

Example of finished painting

A few color choices, and a limited palette in this painting. The saying “Simple is more” is evident in this painting, a dynamic composition and focusing on the potential of two contrast colors [here blue and yellow/orange] create variations in values and space.

Marks, lines and the contrast of two complementary colors yellow and purple create a simple, but eye-catching contrast. Composition, and the flow and movement in the painting is captured after using music and movement be part of the painting…letting the body and heart absorb and be filled with the beauty of tranquility, lightness of heart and inner peace.

Feelings of Energy,
Joy & Freedom

This painting has a color theme of three primary colors, red, blue and yellow. Dark blue-black areas and the white areas create depth, space and dimension.

Music, movement and dance was part of the painting process, creating the feeling of expansion and freedom, and
this energy became infused in the painting.

Another finished painting.

A simple color palette, where values and composition builds the piece along with texture and contrast in colors and shapes.
Intuitive painting has a meditative feeling; you connect inward, listen to the next Move, make some marks and movements, and go with the flow, staying open to possibilities that opens in the process and let your soul express itself.

 

Movement

Move to feel your body and your heart. Besides the physiological benefits of movements, you will have the feelings of lightness of heart, feeling more grounded and more in harmony with yourself.

Music

With heart-centered music, our soul and body wants to move. Our bodies are built of atoms and particles originating from starseeds, and we are all connected energetically. Sounds/music, help us remember who we are..

Meditation

You will explore different meditation techniques, that is easy to implement in your daily life. Consciously allowing the breath to be part of the meditation, and allowing yourself to Be, you will intentionally take charge of creating harmony inside yourself, that relaxes every part of your body, and giving your body the space and time to self-regulate it self for healing and renewal.
