Five minute painting: forgetting about time

Five minute painting: forgetting about time

Dear readers,

Today I did another five minute painting. I love this process. It doesn’t cost a lot of time, and it learns me a lot about letting go, getting out of my own way, not thinking too much and just let the painting unfold.

Halfway I had to laugh out loud, about the craziness of this process. I see myself painting like a mad woman – in the meantime making all kinds of mistakes. For instance: I wanted to add some transparant Quinacridone Nickel Azo Gold – but by accident, I grabbed the brush with black paint on it. But: with some white added, it became an interesting sort of greenish color (which I painted over, because it wasn’t so beautiful after all.

I see myself falling back on turquoise again – this time the darker turquoise (not the green turquoise). Which is no problem for me. Right now I don’t feel attracted to other colors, so I keep it like this.

I painted for five minutes, and after that I wanted to give myself a second five minutes. Alas, I forget to set the timer, so I believe this second part is about 6,5 minutes long.

It’s a big difference between the first part and the second part, and I think the most important difference is that I covered a lot. By taking away a lot of the ‘noise’ the painting comes together.

Of course I could have taken this painting further, but for now, for this experiment, it’s enough for me.

This is the result of the first five minutes:

And this came out of it seven minutes later:
I created a small video about it, that you can watch here:

Have a wonderful, creative day!

Dear reader, Today I made a painting on A4 format. I recorded the painting process, and if everything has turned out well, you can watch the video below. I actually really enjoy recording the process. It takes a bit time on beforehand (and afterward editing the video), but the extra concentration puts me even more in the flow. I don’t think, I paint ;-)! Here’s the result:
And here’s the video:
Have a beautiful day!
