Week 23 ~ From Intuition to Completion

No matter how deep a study you make. What you really have to rely on is your own intuition and when it comes down to it, you really don't know what's going to happen until you do it.

All art is intuitive to some degree. At the opposite end of the spectrum it can be purely technical. Most artists sit somewhere in the middle. I am about 60/40 in favor of intuition. I love the idea of letting my mind relax and play with materials. However, at the end the technical side comes in and I lose all intuitive processes and work towards resolvement and refinement.

I thought that I would document this process for an artwork "Abstract Owl No/2".
