Many of my favorite paintings are the ones
I had the most fun creating. Staying in a
playful state of being while you paint keeps
you out of your logical mind and open to more
possiblities and authentic moments. This is a
great way to stay loose and avoid taking things
too seriously ... and it’s simply more fun!
We have a lot to learn from children in this
department!
Play with many aspects of your paintings—
color, imagery, words, and composition provide
endless opportunites for playful moments.
To stay in a playful place, try spontaneously
“dancing” the paint around the canvas. Let
your marks be quick and decisive—full of
movement and life. Again, don’t overthink.
Allow your childlike impulses to move your
brush around the canvas and hang on for a
spontaneous ride. If you have an urge to paint
a giraffe, paint a giraffe. If you want to use
pink, use pink. Polka dots? Yes! Your playful
ways are a gift to the world, so embody your
five-year-old self and don’t look back.
