Brave Intuitive Painting” is an inspiring and encouraging book for both novice and experienced painters that teaches a spontaneous, bold, and fearless approach to painting as a process of discovery. Learn how to create colorful, unique, expressive paintings through a variety of techniques that combine basic, practical painting principles with innovative personal self-expression and personal growth.

This fun and forgiving approach to painting is based on exploring the process, letting go of fear, releasing preconceived ideas of what your paintings are supposed to look like, and allowing the paintings to unfold naturally and with ease. Learning to work in layers, will give you the freedom to cover up, re-start, wipe away, and change courses many times along the way. Unexpected and unique compositions, color combinations, and subject matter will appear as you allow your paintings to emerge in an organic, unplanned way. Working from this place of curiosity and freedom will open up a world of creative possibilities where there are no mistakes and anything is possible.
