I happened to be home a few days ago and had no idea what I wanted to draw or paint at the time but I sure was in a mood to spray, drip and even finger paint some ink on paper. And see what happens. Based on the patterns I developed, I came up with a painting which I eventually developed and worked on to create something interesting.
Here is what I started with. Spritz some water then add some magenta and yellow ecoline ink and move the paper around. Then some yellow acrylic ink and dotted it around randomly. Following that, I sprayed some of the Dylusions ink spray in violet and purple. I can’t really remember the sequence at all but it was all by impulse and instinct what I was adding on.
I analysed the patterns I had inadvertently created and drew from my imagination using my Neocolor II watersoluble crayons. Then spread the colour with a wet brush. Some flowers and plants. And a little creature! A lizard or salamander perhaps? Amazing how the imagination stretches.
I developed the painting further using iridescent coloured India Inks in blue and violet, enjoying the shimmery effect they made though not so visible in the photos. Until I was satisfied with the result I just kept adding and adding stuff using more ink, uni posca markers and stamping some Staz-on inks in yellow and pink with bubble wrap. And now I think I am good to go.
As a change from my “planned” artwork, it is fun creating spontaneously. I guess they call it intuitive painting for a reason. Gives quite a satisfaction too. When I look at the painting, I not only look at it as a whole but partially as well. Take a close up of each flower or part of the painting in a viewfinder and see how cool they look too!
