This week, Louise is joined by abstract painter Sally-Anne Ashley, who helps artists to find and develop their own unique approach to their work. We begin our conversation by asking ‘what does it mean to have a process?’ and then go on to explore the framework Sally-Anne has created. Although we are both painters, this conversation is relevant for any medium and any style, because it’s all about helping you to navigate your own way forward.
Once you understand what you want to say, you can make decisions about individual paintings. From that starting point, you can decide the subject, the colours, the marks, the textures, the materials, the tools and so much more. But we also believe it’s important to follow a process that allows for discovery – you may start out with one intention and then go in a completely different direction. I call it following the joy, Sally-Anne calls it following the nudges – but whatever you call it, we both believe that is the key to everything. If you need encouragement to listen to your own desires and trust your own inner wisdom, this episode is for you.
