Art Every Day Month - day 18

I felt like making a more intuitive painting again. But small this time, since time is limited. So I bought some 13x18cm (5"x 7") canvasboards and started throwing paint at it. Well no, not really .... I used my gelliplate, without much succes, and then tried to get a bit more colour with my spray-inks. This is how this one came out:


The only thing I could see in it was a long neck, shoulders and green hair. But it was enough to start with ...

It went through a few different stages, which I forgot to take pictures of, and ended up like this:


Not much left of the original colours, but, who cares ... ? I had fun creating it. I'm longing to start a bigger canvas again, but alas, that'll have to wait. In the meantime I can make these little ones, lots more are waiting to be finished.

This is my entry for the 18th (whaaat ...!?) day of Art Every Day Month. And today I hope I'll be able to visit some more participating blogs ....

Thanks so much for coming here and leaving comments, I love and treasure every single one of them. I'll be back tomorrow! ♥ ♥ ♥

  3. Gaaf hoor!! 13 x 18 is een leuke afmeting en nog heel goed verstuurbaar vooral als canvasboard. Ik vind het een heel lief en grappig schilderijtje.

  4. It's lovely and I love to see the different stages it goes through. :) This size might be small but when I was working this size I had so many layers, would you believe they actually took me a few months to finish! I did however work on them all at the same time up to a point where I would work on each individually towards the end. I think it's a fun size to use, I look forward to seeing more!

  6. Throwing paint is so theraputic, so is gelli printing for me too, kind of out of mind body in painting. Love your small piece. xox

  7. This is so beautiful and seems that you had lots of fun! I love just throwing paint and letting the paint(ing) letting me know where it wants to go.

    Thank you for sharing the process!

    Have a great day!

  9. It's interesting how a painting can start out as one thing and end up entirely different. It looks great.

  12. Lovely result, rather mystical and a touch of surreality, raising the question 'what is happening here'. It's always amazing what emerges from this approach - and until I read your post today I never realised that 'intuitive' referred to the kind of thing I often do. I always wondered what people meant when they used the term. Your 'intuitivity', if there is such a word, always produces great results.

  13. Thanks for your comment on my blog Denthe! I love the commanding prescence of the woman with her long elegant neck combined with a touch of humour :)
