Intuitive drawings can begin as simple doodle that will become more eloquent as you practice. You can use ballpoint pens, markers, gel pens or pastels. Draw for the surprise and joy of the process, without knowing in advance how each drawing will turn out.
The Intuitive Drawing Challenge
I challenge you to complete 30 days of intuitive drawing. Put your pen to paper, and create one intuitive drawing a day for 30 days. If you get insights as you draw, write your notes alongside your drawings. Your intuitive drawings will look different than mine. Allow your own innate intuitive style to emerge.
At the end of 30 days, you will have moved closer to the essence of your own original expression. Tag me @shelleyklammer on Instagram and I will follow along! #30dayintuitiveartchallenge
This drawing journey was not easy to start…It is a while since I stopped drawing/painting and each time I try to get back I feel ‘frozen’. I have never tried intuitive drawing before but after reading your personal story I thought I ought to give it a try. For this challenge, I used only markers (which I haven’t used before for drawing) and/or a B2 pencil. Nevertheless, after about 3 days I was looking forward to my daily drawing. I enjoyed the process. Thank you so much! ~ K.L. Scotland
"This activity encouraged my intuition to emerge and play its role gradually. I enjoyed doing these and I enjoyed using felt pens. The drawings acted like a mirror of my subconscious. I ended up grateful for whatever I put the on paper and I honoured each drawing by coloring it."
