Enjoy the freedom of Intuitive painting. Let your creative self go with the magic of watercolours, inks and mark making. Connect to the designs and patterns that exist within your inner knowing.
Perfect for the insecure beginner and the seasoned artist. Release your inner critic. Get out of your mind and into your heart, as you surprise yourself by freeing what may be laying dormant since childhood.
This is a non goal oriented way of finding the joy and freedom of creating your own sacred art.
What is Intuitive Painting?
Intuitive painting is a method of creating art that aims to explore and uncover aspects of the inner self. It is is suited to beginning artists, and to advanced painters. The goal is not to learn specific techniques, produce a body or work or develop a commercially viable style.
