Healing through the Arts: Let Go! Be Bold and let it Unfold!
By Tavishi Kanoria
Today I want to introduce the concept of “Intuitive Painting”. The intuitive painting process is about putting brush to paper and seeing what unfolds. It’s about looking within and listening to your intuitive voice. This process will nurture you and feed your soul, help you become more creative, and let your inner child out to play. Let go of your inner critic and let the artwork flow out of you.
Creating a piece of art is both an intuitive and analytical process for most artists. Children, who are natural, authentic artists, paint solely from their intuition and instinct. They reach for colors they are attracted to, one after the other, and proceed to draw or paint without inhibition. This is true creative self-expression.
This kind of artwork is about the process of painting, not about the results. It doesn’t matter what the painting looks like, but about what you discover along the way. There are no mistakes. Let go of your preconceived ideas about your artistic abilities. Trust yourself.
Intuitive painting uses color and movement to help you express your inner world and heal your soul. Express yourself in beautiful tempera paint, as well as glitter and pearlescent colors. Come, play and enjoy this healing process.
