How are you?
I do enjoy hearing from you about your world so please do share.
I am sending you this from Deep inside my Ice Cave where I am staying cool and taking my Self Care very seriously. I feel so lucky to have a beautifully cool art studio in my garden where I can work, play, meditate and share with lovely Others like you.
I have lots of exciting workshops coming up and can't wait to share them. I have a new "Letting Go" workshop, Discover Your Inner Intuitive Artist which is actually now fully booked and I will be offering a Sparkling New Creative Confidence eCourse direct to your inbox for those of you who would like to take part. Please get in touch if you have questions.
So, I have made a FREE Painting Video course for those of you who wish to bring more creativity into your lives and painting is a wonderful, healing, relaxing activity reducing stress and anxiety and lifting our mood. Simply play - don't take this too seriously.
Below are four videos demonstrating step by step how to create a Big or Small painting simply by Pouring & Scraping. All you need is a canvas, or foam board to paint on. About 6 acrylic paints - say 3 warm colours like red, yellow, pink and 3 cold colours from deep to light blues and greens - and white.
An old credit card for scraping, or a plastic picnic knife. You may have a palette knife.
Pop some old clothes on and put old newspaper down to protect the floor or table wherever you are doing this. Put on your favourite CD.
You may like to watch Video 1 first, then have a go, then later when your first layer is dry fully, watch the second video... It is VERY important that you leave each layer to dry really thoroughly between layers.
