This painting is part of my intuitive art series. What is intuitive art? I’m sure it means different things to different people, but for me, it’s about letting go as I paint – using painting as a form of meditation. Seeing where the brush takes me without having a plan in mind at the beginning. It’s really relaxing and I think this is one of my favourite types of painting to create.
This one is hard to capture digitally – the gold paint has a lovely shimmer to it.
The original painting is A4 size, and is available for purchase in my Etsy store. Prints and products like the ones featured below are available via Redbubble.
I called this painting ‘contemplation’ because this style of painting is very meditative to me. I never know what the finished painting is going to be like when I begin – I just go with the flow, and see where the paint takes me. I love this combination of colours!

I wanted to have another go at creating a painting using these colours, and this is what I came up with:
It reminds me of the shrubs they have around my school which drop white flowers in a carpet all over the ground. The branch of the tree is actually painted in navy watercolour paint although it looks pretty close to black.
Earlier this week I wrote about the Two Happy Stampers Colour Challenge. When stuck for ideas for a theme for my Saturday Selections this week, I thought why not take the colour challenge that little bit further, and find some lovely items from Etsy featuring Coral, Teal, White and Navy?
4. Lotus Favorite Mug by YogaGoat. Most of us have a favourite mug or cup – the one you always reach for when you need that cup of tea or coffee. I can easily see this mug becoming someone’s favourite – I love the coral lotus flower design, and the little thumb rests on the top of the handles.
6. Turquoise and Ivory Traditions Damask Table Runner by Darling Occasions. I love table runners – they’re a great way to create a feature of your table, and tie in the colours of the room, without covering up the whole table like a tablecloth does. This pretty runner would be a great centerpiece to any dining table. I love the way it’s been paired with the white vases in this photograph, too.
I think I still have one more idea up my sleeve for this colour challenge, so stay tuned…
