When I get stuck with my art, it usually means I’ve reached an ugly stage and need to return to play.
The other day when this happened, I went back to splattering acrylic inks over wet acrylic paint. Then I squirted a little neon pink liquid watercolor on top to see what would happen (I got this incredible stained glass effect).
This is one of the easiest ways to give freedom to a painting as I cover up the parts I don’t like. It almost feels too easy – dripping and playing with color, but I’ve learned to follow my joy (that’s when the magic happens).
Whenever I allow myself to have fun, my paintings come to life.
Sometimes all I need is to get out of my comfort zone and start playing again so I can stop thinking so much and really get into a flow. That’s when a whole new world opens up and creativity is set free.
