This lesson is delivered as a video again! The video is only 30 minutes. You will need to pause the video to do the warm ups described... This time the poses are all of Jasmin's back. You will be able to choose which ones you want to focus on and pause the video for as long as you need.
You will need
CHALK (one stick of white)
Paper at least A3 size or bigger (good to use cheap paper for warm ups)
A soft pencil or progresso (graphite stick) for the first part.
Charcoal or soft pastel or ink.
An intuitive painting from an earlier week to work on.
Paints for adding the figure into your intuitive painting.
These video lessons are intended for your eyes only and are not to be shared with others outside of our group.
Below are 3 quotes from one of my favourite books, Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert.
"You have treasures hidden within you — extraordinary treasures — and so do I, and so does everyone around us. And bringing those treasures to light takes work and faith and focus and courage and hours of devotion, and the clock is ticking, and the world is spinning, and we simply do not have time anymore to think so small."
"Most of all, be ready. Keep your eyes open. Listen. Follow your curiosity. Ask questions. Sniff around. Remain open. Trust in the miraculous truth that new and marvelous ideas are looking for human collaborators every single day. Ideas of every kind are constantly galloping toward us, constantly passing through us, constantly trying to get our attention."
"Frustration is not an interruption of your process; frustration is the process. The fun part (the part where it doesn’t feel like work at all) is when you’re actually creating something wonderful, and everything’s going great, and everyone loves it, and you’re flying high. But such instances are rare. You don’t just get to leap from bright moment to bright moment. How you manage yourself between those bright moments, when things aren’t going so great, is a measure of how devoted you are to your vocation, and how equipped you are for the weird demands of creative living."
Incase you are interested, I will be in the Art of Flow at home FB on Wednesday this week at 11am for 30 mins, intuitively painting a big canvas.
