I was working with my friend Deb recently trying to reproduce some Flora Bowley intuitive art. I was given some Magic ink for my birthday ( acrylic ink) and I had been wondering how to use them. Flora Bowley produces large colourful semi abstract pieces you can see her work at http://braveintuitiveyou.com/blog/
We started small building up layers, using acrylic paint and ink. I love the first 3 or 4 layers but find it hard to see shapes to work to develop the work further.
I bought Flora’s art journal ‘ Brave Intuitive Painting: A Journal For Living Creatively’ – which is a collection of finished art work – examples of motifs and pages with prompts for you to work on. I thought it might help me see more shapes in my work
Below is a step by step and my initial piece with some shapes drawn into it
I am loving the technique and have produced lots of versions – but I am still struggling to see shapes . I made a version with another friend – and she managed to see a tree. However I over worked it and ended up doodling on it- I am not sure if it is finished yet.
