Step away from the plan…Posted: March 8, 2015
I’m a planner, researcher, prepper or whatever you want to call it. I like figuring out what I’m going to do before I do it. That usually involves a small sketch or an outline or even a small ” sample” version before I attack a project. This is partly due to how I was taught and partly to get the fear of how to start out. Lately I’ve been thinking about the idea of where inspiration comes from. Not just in art making but life in general. It’s so different for everyone. So in a fit of inspiration 🙂 I’ve decided to try doing this excercise where I set up and just start. No thinking, no planing just putting down whatever marks and seeing where it goes. I decided to start with paint but I don’t think I’m going to limit it. Whatever medium suits me at the time. The duration is no more than a half hour so I won’t have time to start thinking and planning. Plus I find the “stress” of wanting to put something down before the time is up makes me just do it. I’m going to try posting a session to session progress of what I do and we’ll see how it goes. No judging right, wrong, good, bad, beginning or end. Just what happened. Ready, set, GO!
