HOW I PAINT
My painting process is intuitive, meditative, spiritual and healing. I use wet on wet watercolour painting technique that allows free flow of colours often directly mixed on paper. Wet on wet water-colour painting technique styles vary a lot, each artist adds to it some unique touch, feel, texture.
As starting process I use the same technique as children in Rudolf Steiner’s kindergartens or Waldorf style schools. I learned it when my son was attending Waldorf kindergarden in Latvia. It is amazing process that I would love to introduce more and have decided to create special video series in near future.
The process starts with fully wetting watercolour paper … let it soak in water-bath for ~10 minutes… then I paint… while it dries… Sometimes I love to add some dry technique while finishing the layer. When first layer dries I continue with the next… and whole process starts again.Using professional grade paper it is possible to wet paper even 20 times.
Meta physical side
Each painting has been created as a meditative exercise with a spiritual or metaphysical intention, exploring the subject or question that I choose, for example: “What is abundance, what is the meaning of this quality, how to feel and experience abundant life?” or “How to understand Self Love?”
Historically I classify my paintings in Series of Quantum Stories:
Series 2: Commitment to Yourself.
I also have created two series of the dream journeys - through New Zealand and Azores islands (Portugal). I connected with these places in my meditations and started to explore more and create series of paintings. Afterwards my dreams manifested in physical reality and together with my partner and daughter we went to these places on our world around trip.
