Well, I wouldn't call this a success, but at least it is a start. I am trying to learn about intuitive painting. I have seen beautiful work by many artists who "see shapes" and and are able to bring them out of a background in such a way, it looks mystical.
My process was to layer some warm acrylic colors and spray them with water to get them to mix. After that layer dried, I added some blues, greens and purples and sprayed those. I didn't like that layer at all so immediately sprayed some red, yellow and orange ink on top to warm it up again. When that dried I searched for the "shapes". I came up with some very cliche shapes! A puppy, bunny, bird, angel, butterfly and what I call a "Hippo Bird" He is probably the most interesting! I traced them in with a pencil, then painted and decorated them. I added "Try Something New" in glitter alphabet letters, and "Be Brave"in black pencil. I added a little white pen around a few things. It was an "experience"! Oh well, maybe next time!
The final painting in all it's glory below!!
