Intuitive Mark Making
Beginner | 13 min 13 sec
13:13
Take an experimental approach to creating abstract art with intuitive painter Flora Bowley. In this quick class, you’ll learn how to use nontraditional “tools” – like Gerber daises, mushrooms, and celery – to make unique marks with acrylic paint. Flora’s teaching style is equal parts eye-opening and fun, and her techniques will help you nurture a curious and open-minded approach to painting with acrylics.
Here’s what you’ll need:
  • 8 ½” x 11” paper or cardstock
  • Acrylic paint in a variety of colors (Flora uses Golden Fluid and basic craft acrylic paints)
  • Palette or palette paper (Flora uses a glass plate on cookie sheet)
  • Water container
  • Rags
  • Organic materials to paint with, like celery, corn cobs, mushrooms, potatoes, peppers, pine needles, and flowers
