More Intuitive Painting

I have been inspired lately by the work of  American artist Mindy Lacefield, and love way she paints intuitively! I decided that to try the same idea. So on went the music and out came the paints and mixed media materials. Not thinking too much about what I wanted the end result to look like, I picked colours and shapes that felt right at that moment of creativity and just let myself paint. If I made a mark that I didn't like, I just painted over it! It was really freeing to realise that a 'mistake' actually ended up being part of the journey of the painting-not the end result! If it didn't look right, the painting just wasn't finished yet! I have finished two paintings so far in this style and I am really happy with how they have turned out. There seems to be more going on in them than other paintings I have created before, and I like that!
What do you think?

Hope you are having a great weekend!
