I learned quite a bit about intuitive painting from this class. I do love bears but I find when trying a new technique my creativity flows a bit better when drawing plants and birds so that is what I chose for my painting.
I had some sanded texture paste so I used that as part of the background. I forgot it dried clear so I painted a thin layer of white over it. Once that layer was dry I started adding color to bring the flowers and bird to life. The details were added with black and white ink.
I like how the texture paste gives the painting an impasto look. Thanks for a great class Irina!
