"How I Approach Non-Objective, Intuitive Painting."
Welcome Back to Another BobBlast
These are my thoughts when I hear other painters say they are "intuitive painters." Non-objective is another phrase I hear. For me, it all sounds indecisive.
You may have watched enough of my BobBlasts to know that I paint with a goal, an intention, a purpose... all result-oriented. I start with a concept first and I title the painting even before I start. It now has a name - and when the painting matches the name or title, it's finished!
Non-Objective painting may be a totally different approach!
Starting out with no concept other than to play, splash, experiment with paint and see what happens.
For me, non-objective is not having any concept or idea what to paint - but I still show up and start painting.
I keep my studio ready-to-paint: My art materials are laid out ahead of time and set aside. The canvas lays flat on my table. I begin to draw and paint the mood I am in at that moment.
I begin with graphic design shapes - since I don't have a concept, I choose a color combination and a design composition to give the painting a structure.
Continue painting until an image or an emotion appears that I have never seen or felt before. I love this part of discovery. It's like teaching yourself to paint, without reading a book about painting.
Show Up & Paint! It's the path of least resistance.
