The holy grail of painting is finding a sweeping movement that brings your painting alive. But how to get flowing when faced with the canvas? This course is focused on my favorite tips for getting out of the way and letting the magic through.
Pen, Palette knife, Paint: Power Up!
This course was born out of an honest plea from four girlfriends: "You're so loose in your painting. Can you PLEASE show us how?" All of these ladies lamented that they were getting stuck stuck stuck in the details. Over working and over thinking. It was time to break out the bypass tools! Pen for easy explorations and Palette Knife to stop the perfectionist. I loved my impromptu in-person lesson and was totally inspired to capture all the information into this course. Stella, Mary, Gina & Carmen, this course has everything I showed you and more. Thank you for asking.
(aka is this class for me?)
"Jenafer Joy’s classes are well-organized, whimsical and oh, so creative! Her suggested prompts nudge me into my intuitive side at the same time introducing some new artistic techniques I can play with. Jena’s beautiful examples and her honest way of poking around the deeper self are inspirational and downright fun."
My demonstration painting took 1.5 hours so you can expect to spend between 2 - 4 hours depending on your natural pace. Each step will take under 15 minutes to complete. You can take a new bite every day or use a blow dryer and dry the canvas to move through the whole experience over the course of an afternoon!
"Jenafer Joy’s Approach is by far the lightest and the deepest method I have experienced. Lightest, for it immediately surrounds inner work and exploring in joyful play. Engaging even my grumpiest parts into a “fun game”.... Deepest, for we can follow the thread as deep as we wish. She leads gently but firmly, engaging playfully and deeply at the same time. A rare gift. Solo divers are welcome here, and secured a safe space of private witnessing with her gentle, witty guidance. But she also surfs and maintains group energy incredibly well, strengthening synergies and supporting each one of us as if we were truly unique to her and in the world. I have been relying on Jenafer for my own balance for quite some time now, and she keeps surprising me, with her creativity, with her amazing cultural, spiritual psychological information, and with a true generosity of spirit. Dear Jena hope you know that I wholeheartedly, (and wholebrainly) appreciate you!!!!!" - Anna
