INTUITIVE PAINTING Series

Paint from Your Heart

Be Brave, Be Bold, Be Creative

“Often the fear of the Blank Canvas stops us in our tracks & keeps us from starting. This Workshop is for both novice & experienced painters & teaches a spontaneous, bold and fearless approach. Learn techniques for working with vibrant colour and avoiding mud & your own unique painting style. Be Brave & don’t look back”

When we surrender and let go of control and are “open” wonderful things start to happen. Connect more deeply with your intuition and you will find your own authentic style

“Listen to your own Artistic Voice and your Creative Spirit Will SOAR”
