Week 38 - Brave Intuitive Painting with Flora Bowley
*no brushes needed*
This was one of the hardest lessons I have ever done.
Not because it was technically difficult.
Not because the subject was hard.
The reason I found this one of the hardest, is because I was accessing new ways of painting that I had never done before.
Using a range a tools, from potato stamps, flowers, feathers, and other items I found around the house, the pantry + the fridge I made marks.
Marks that had no real rhyme or reason.
Marks that were intuitive.
I had no idea that this would unleash my inner bitch + bring her to the front.
Every mark I made she has something to say.
Every time I added something new she had a comment,
I had to walk away several times...
And I realise that the reason my inner bitch was out to play, was because this was something I hadn't done before.
It felt foreign + uncomfortable.
In the end, although I am not particularly fond of the painting, I love that it represents that I pushed past the doubt, the criticism + the fear.
I think I will need to make some more of these types of paintings, paintings that use my intuition.
I would love to be in a place that I could create with out the commentary of my inner bitch.
What about you? Are you comfortable with your intuition guiding you while creating, playing or living? Or does your inner bitch like to pop up + share her two cents?? I'd love to hear your stories.
