I can attest to the pain of forced creativity - I assure you, you do not always feel like fulfilling 4 years worth of studio art assignments day in and day out. Even now, sometimes I still have to just commit to putting paint or pen to paper and go from there.
Lately, I’ve been reversing the process and playing with the paint first then adding gestural lines to the damp paper. Still waiting on the “flame” but I know it will come, it always does.
Get inspired by colors, shapes, forms, textures within the landscape.
Set up “studio” on the counter in the van (this is quite a process in itself).
Lay down watercolor.
Let partially dry, then add gestural ink drawings.
