"I will Talk about making a simple plan before you start the painting.
Think about the way you want it to feel, what colors you want to use. Do
you want a focal point or visual tracking so you can lead the viewer
through your painting? What do you want the viewer to see, feel or touch
with their eyes?
You can use all or any of these ideas to
create with some direction in mind if you desire. You can be Realistic
or Abstract or paint to your own music. Your ART should be totally
yours, but there is no harm to think about some of these questions or
others you may come up with. The plan is to put paint to the canvas or
paper and get going on it. Come paint with others and fill the room with
I suggest a 20x20 canvas or larger, 22x30 watercolor
paper or something in that ballpark. Bring your drawing tools, acrylics,
watercolor, normal water buckets, etc. and let's gather and work on a
new project. Hopefully
something I talk about will excite you to try something different.
Painting the feeling of Spring, symbols of Spring, or a Spring object. If that does not excite you, bring a topic or feeling or subject and PLAY."
