Loosening up!

I am on a quest to loosen up a bit more each day, so I am following my
instincts about this and see what the results are, here are a few new 
paintings resulting of this experiments!  

They look like an explosion of emotions! It maybe that I am happy
 and excited with my new creativity breeze!

I am also daring to paint some words, I know calligraphy is hard and takes years
of practice, I have joined a few wonderful classes and I love them, I probably am
using some techniques learned in them here but it`s part of my loosening up sessions
to jump into what I usually don`t!

Now I can see that loosening up means to loose fear, it`s funny
how something I like so much can also be frightening in some ways I
 didn`t even realized until now!

The result is fun, fun, fun! 

Do you have a tip on loosening up?  
I would love to hear what you have to share!

    1. I am glad you like my work Michelle! I love Chicago, is one of my favorite cities in the US!

  4. I try to loosen up with faces...especially the eyes. I like my paintings better when there are no harsh dark lines...just spots here and there to make it all come together.

    You loosen up so well Monica! :)

    1. Ho, yes, that is lovely, I am practicing faces and also love that kind of spots but then It gets hard to stop! I also have to learn to stop at some point! ;D
      Cheers Lisa!
