Painting with Music


“To draw, you must close your eyes and sing.” - Pablo Picasso

Painting with Music is a process where you first center yourself and orient yourself truly to what you listen - feel it play inside and visualize it before picking up the colour you gravitate towards and then let the music guide your brushstrokes. You become the channel; music flows through you and makes you paint pour your feelings on paper. This activity is spontaneous and at the moment that you are bound to feel connected; the immediacy of the activity begs you to be 'present' and you will give in. This will also help you attain a certain level of confidence in your artwork as you are not aiming to be representational. Your work represents your feelings towards a music piece and not an object. It goes through an extremely subjective lens before coming out on paper and is thus extremely original.
