Painting Process + Connecting


This week I want to share the creative process of one of my paintings, maybe you could be inspired, and  try it yourself ;)

Step 1 - collage with different kinds of paper, fabric and lace

---------

Esta semana quero partilhar o processo creativo de um dos meus quadros, quem sabe não te inspiras e experimentas aí em casa ;)

1º passo - colagem com diversos papeis diferentes, tecido e renda




Step 2 - spread paint with your brush and  fingers, making marks, textures and doodles

--------

2º passo - espalhar tinta com o pincel e com os dedos, fazer marcas e texturas e pequenos desenhos



During the whole process I like to follow my intuition and feel what each painting asks from me, so the idea is to "go with the flow"

----------------

Durante todo o processo gosto de seguir a minha intuição e sentir o que cada peça pede de mim, por isso a ideia é "go with the flow"


Step 3 - look at the background and let it inspires me, bring me a message, a character, a word ... when I know what it is, start drawing with my favorite pencil.

----------------------------

3º passo- olho para o fundo e deixo que ele me inspire, me traga uma mensagem, uma personagem, uma palavra... quando sei o que é começo a desenhar com o meu lápis favorito.

Step 4- paint the figure write the words and complete the scene using acrylic paint, pastel, and watercolor crayons , and more collage


Here the message was "Connecting" (connecting / bonding) for me to connect in this painting, among the plants and nature reminds me, that I am part of this planet and how important is our connection to planet earth and all that belongs to it. That this creative force of the planet, is in me, in us, we just have to connect with it.
Just close your eyes and breathe.

--------------

4º passo- pinto a figura, escrevo as palavras e completo o cenário usando tinta acrilica, pastel, lápis de cera de aguarela e mais colagem
 
Aqui a mensagem foi "connecting" (conectando / ligação) para mim conectar nesta pintura, no meio das plantas, da natureza lembra-me de que sou parte deste planeta e do quão importante é a nossa ligação ao planeta terra e a tudo o que lhe pertence. De que essa força creativa do planeta existe em mim, em nós, basta conectar-mos com ela.
Basta fechar os olhos e respirar


I believe we all have responsibility for our planet and to do a little every day, it costs nothing ... so every day in the morning I imagine, I have deep roots connected to the center of the planet and I send white light and  give thank´s to Mother Earth.

Put your hands in paint and let yourself connect with your creativity, with the planet ...

We are all one!

---------
Acredito que todos temos responsabilidade pelo nosso planeta e que fazer todos os dias um bocadinho não custa nada...por isso todos os dias de manhã imagino que tenho raizes profundas ligadas ao centro do palneta, agradeço á mãe terra e envio luz branca.

 Põe as mãos na tinta e conecta com a tua creatividade, com o planeta...

 Somos todos um!
