The Flow of Painting – Creativity from Inside-Out

Restore your balance, regain your energy and relax whilst immersing yourself into the flux and flow of the painterly process.

The next joyful afternoon painting workshop is on the 24th of January, 2pm – 4 pm

Cost £20. Acrylic paint and a small canvas included.

(If you would like to work on more than one canvas you can make a purchase at my studio or bring your own)

The sessions are for adults only and no previous experience is necessary. We paint in a small group, exploring colour and texture of the painterly process.

RSVP via ‘comments’ (right-hand side column at the bottom) if you would like to book a place or have any further questions.

The Sunday afternoons are there to let go to, re-charge and re-energize by doing something that is enjoyable and relaxing.

By immersing yourself into an abstract painterly process you begin to create something from within you. By doing so you create a very unique and secretive visual, which is stunning in its complexity, without being explicit. That’s your intuition laid out in front of you. Painting by painting we can unleash this by learning how to let go, how to free our self into the process of painting and by an increasing knowledge of how to use the painterly explorative techniques.

Last Sunday we started with exercises involving free flow painting and working blind-folded. This was to ensure a strong focus on the movement and feel of the paintbrush and its contact on the surface, without the wish to ‘paint something in particular’.

After the exercise we continued the development on the canvas.

Painting as part of your Wellbeing

The Sunday afternoon painting workshops started last November out of the impulse to offer something unpretentious to unfold ones creativity in a safe, supportive and relaxing atmosphere.painting is wellbeing

There is no need to always paint on large formats to be expressive. Allocating the space to explore helps unwind and release the creative energy that’s already inside you: allowing you to liberate your imagination

Immersing yourself into the painterly process lets you forget about the daily worries and gives you a moment of inner peace and focus, which can be compared with a meditative experience. Most people feel refreshed and uplifted after the session.

The images below are examples of work created in the last month sessions.
