day 4 knowledge vs. intuition

10x20 pastel on wallis

So here it is. I just stopped thinking. This once again reminds me that it's important to know, but yet it's just as important to place that knowledge into the back of your brain and operate by feeling and intuition.
Now to the quick draw craziness.

I like these field patterns! I'm glad you didn't stress too much and just enjoyed the feeling of the place. I hope the quick draw goes well!

Yes! This is great and filled with feeling. What do you think got you past the clamor of the details?

Jane Aston said...

I like this one very much

Maggie Latham said...

Love the colours and the patterns which evoke such a feeling of the place. Quick Draw sounds really cool!

Lately, most of your pieces have been all about the sky. I like this "grounded" one, for a change. Great bounty of color!

Love the movement in this one. The curves of the plow lines and the horizontals in back leading to the right side blues, then back to the curves.

Theresa Evans said...

Wonderful colour and enticing movement around the painting! I love it.

Hi Loriann,
I like how you went from vertical to horizon. This helped to create a sense of space.I also like how you used color transitions in this painting. You have found out the "secret" -stop" thinking" & operate by feeling and intuition.

Hi Everyone!

Sorry it has taken a couple of days to get back to you. It has been nutz! I really value your comments and love that you take the time to write. So here goes:
Hi Donna! Stress seems to be part of the whole thing. I am glad I could finally relax and paint (rather than think.)
Hi Kvan! Good question. I really have no idea. I wonder if it was choosing this field, which was one I had never done, nor did I have an idea what to do made me just let it flow. Somewhere in there I started to have fun...go figure! Thank you!
Hi Jane! thanks for your feedback!
Hi Maggie, I think I was finally able to feel the place and just enjoy. Personally the Quick Draw is seriously nerve wracking!
Hi Sam!!!! Interesting observation..maybe i needed to be grounded in order to connect to a new place?????
Hi Pam! Thank you..it really was just plain fun to do and feel!
Hi Theresa! I wasn't thinking movement, but as the tractor cut the long grass the movement of the land was so strong I enjoyed its syncopated rhythm.
Hi NJ, Yes, the "secret is mine now...when it allows! Thank you!!!

Stunning. Marvelous. Wow, I am impressed with this one!

Not only does the image move well around the surface, but it is believable and the way you represented/depicted the elements is really good. Great!

Loriann I love this. The swirled line work is superb. I know I got about ten ideas just a first glance. This has series written all over it.
Great job.

loriann said...
