THE DEEPENING ART PROCESS - 2

4. Now, that you have made a beginning, you take some distance from the paper and look at it as if it was not you who did it.

Explanation:

This trick helps you look at what you did with fresh eyes. It allows you to let the first step impress you with its effect on you. What do you feel when you look at it? What kind of an experience is it?

This is the first question. There is a second one, right after this.

 

5. Now you ask yourself: What can I add to this first step, so that I shall make the whole artwork beautiful and true for me? Immediately as a visual idea pops into your mind, do it. If more ideas come, choose the one that you  prefer.

Explanation:

Here is the main question to keep in mind throughout the process. What to do, so that the whole artwork will become beautiful and true for me? This is the aim of this process.

Why (your own, true,) sense of beauty?

Beauty cannot be explained logically. You must use your intuition and awareness. Intuition brings you ideas that you never knew you could bring out and awareness tells you whether it is more beautiful or less beautiful for you. The development and strengthening of your connection to intuition, and the development of awareness give you the two essential tools for your growth.

 

Both intuition and awareness are of a deeper state than thinking. In this way, right from the beginning, you put yourself in a deeper state, which enables the discovery and dissolution of  your inner conflicts. (You will have guidance through the process.)

 

6. As you finish the second step of the drawing, put your drawing at a slight distance and look at it as if it was not you who made it. Let it impress you with what it makes you feel.

7. Ask yourself: What shall I add now, so that I’ll make the paper beautiful and true? Use the ideas that come.

And so on.

 

 

8. At a certain point in the process you will start to feel that the drawing is about to be finished. Pay attention to this feeling. You will know that the drawing is finished when you feel that if you add any more, it will become less beautiful and less true. This is the time to stop. The drawing process made itself through you, and finished a complete expression.

 

On the right margin you can see a five step process as the one I described here. See what was added in every step, and see when the process stopped.
