Once I started I easily got in the 'zone'.
Normally I am very controlled and tight with my art work. It takes me a lot to loosen up. My sister-in-law once advised to drink a glass of wine before I started to paint. It was too early in the morning to drink... so I decided to think 'painterly' and just let the paint flow.
I have alway drooled at how easy other artists made it look. A dab of color here, a drawn line there and ta-dah... a beautiful painting. I struggle to make my art look so carefree. I find I grip the brush too tight, get hunched up too close to my work and pre think every stroke I make. If I play some classical music and not think about what I'm doing, the art paints itself.
Go ahead... give it a try!!!
