Intuitive painting is a painting process that is about of letting go of judgment and self doubt and allowing yourself to let go, follow your intuition, and grow from the experience.
The purpose is to get you to experiment and play with various techniques, tools, and mediums.
The process taught in this workshop helps with creative and personal growth, creative uniqueness, and starting from scratch.
It is a personal journey and the outcomes will be completely unique to you.

What brands of Paint do you recommend?
I prefer Golden paints, however, you can use any kind that you have. With color mediums, the better quality of paint the more pigment is in it.
You'll be provided with recommended supplies within the workshop.
Should my painting look like yours?
Your painting will not look exactly like mine. The beauty of intuitive painting is that every piece is unique and one of a kind. The prompts I use are to help you get going. The more you play and experiment and make it your own the better.
What if I make mud?
Let it dry and add some hints of white, let it dry, then continue with prompts, allowing drying time in between.
What if it isn’t working?
Get away from your piece. Sometimes fresh eyes at a later time can help. Turn the canvas, get feedback. Worst case, add big white areas to cover areas you don’t like and begin again. This whole process is about letting go.
