a paradise for me...

a paradise for me... - student project

My idea of painting this beach of the Greek island Serifos, kept me inspired all the way of the procedure of the painting. 

This is how i started:

Painting without intention or thinking "how to do it" or " am i doing it the right way ?"... liberates the hand and mainly the  mind ... When mind is liberated is easier to let emotions guide your hand..in order to proceed to the final step of creating the painting. 

Another benefit of this technique that appeals to me is,  that by using the credit card (or common plastic card, it doesn t matter..)  you spread large anmounts of color each time..

With this way you can see the painting revealing itself very soon .. Since I consider myself a painter that lacks of patience ...i love it when i have progress pretty easy!

Another pick of the painting evolving:

And some other,detailed photoes of the final painting. 

It is very interesting to observe the texture within the painting

and this one that you can see the sand and sea from close look.

Hope this can be inspiring for you too.
