I’m slowly building a list of exercises, some quicker than others, to do when I need an official art warm up or something with low stakes to get me into the studio.
Here’s a great one from Jane Davies. If you don’t follow Jane, go do so right now. I met her years ago when we filmed her at Creative Catalyst productions. She’s an incredibly generous teacher.
Here Jane is doing five minute paintings. She says, “I don’t want to feel rushed here. I just want to make a relaxed kind of visual statement.” I love that idea. I also love that she’s still painting relatively large at 19x25 inches. What a great way to get the body moving.
Here is another example from her blog. I hope she keeps these going. Love them!
