Carole's ArtIntuitive Painting

First of its kind I've done.  I put down a backcground covering the paper with random colors applied any which way.  After it dried I looked at the background from all angles to see if I could find a picture buried in the random lines.  The dory leapt out at me, and after a moment, I saw the one large wave.  I then painted the boat and the wave over the background. 

The purpose of this exercise is to provide a new way of looking at things, a new perspective, new colors, new strokes.  To open the mind to the possible.  It worked, because I've never painted a boat before and I don't usually use green or pink .Had I planned to do this picture, the wave and water, at least, would look considerably different..
