Do you know what intuitive painting is? Intuitive painting for the process instead of the end result.
You can choose to suppress your emotions or accept and express them so that they can transform. Emotions hold tremendous energy, and when you paint your emotions out intuitively, you release them from your habitual control.
The intuitive painting of your emotions neither burdens other people with the unskillful expression of your emotions, nor does it force your emotions deep down into your body to create dis-ease.
Emotions are never permanent. They are energy in motion and they constantly change. When you capture your emotions in paint, you will move and release right before your eyes, and you will grow to trust your intuition!
How To Paint Intuitively
In my year-long expressive arts course, I encourage you to set up a painting station in your home or studio with your watercolour paper, paints, brushes, and a jar of clean water close at hand. Every day, I invite you to create one small, spontaneous watercolour painting without thinking - just feeling.
1. Close your eyes, breathe deeply. To help you move out of your mind, place your non-painting hand on your heart.
2. Listen to yourself internally for a few moments, and then pick up your paintbrush and load it with the first colour that catches your eye.
3. Paint your first stroke, and then without thinking add more paint your brush, perhaps in another colour, and add to your first paint stroke.
4. Continue painting from feeling instead of thinking until you feel complete.
