Watercolour , woad , graphite and gold automatic painting

imageimage

automatic painting or or kinetic painting, is a technique I use to by pass cognitive or logo centric responses.

in it’s simplest form; it is a way of working directly with movement and marks with no prior concept of results or composition. Although I ve controlled the palette to blues, gold and graphite. I usually make these pieces in response to emotion to music and tapping into to an intuitive self.
