Stage 2 of Paintings for "Get Your Paint On-Beyond the Basics" online class
Not sure if anyone will see it, but I did some research on fertility symbols around the world. With some of those images in my subconscious, I began to sketch out the above figures in my two paintings for Get Your Paint On-Beyond the Basics. This is stage 2, just beyond the underpainting. I am not sure what they will look like when they are completed. Will I paint anything out? Will I bring something in particular to the front of the painting? Usually when I create, I completely trust the process and am in a "zone". Sometimes things appear to me as I work. Some people call this creative voice, creative vision, God, Spirit, etc. What happens when you create? Do you pre-plan your work, or create in the moment as you are guided? I'd love to hear about your process, as creativity is fascinating to me.
