Adopt a spontaneous, bold, and fearless approach to painting as a process of discovery-one that results in lush and colorful finished works that will beg to be displayed. This inspiring and encouraging book for both novice and experienced painters teaches how to create colorful, exciting, expressive paintings through a variety of techniques, combining basic, practical painting principles with innovative personal selfexpression. Flora S. Bowley's fun and forgiving approach to painting is based on the notion that "You don't begin with a preconceived painting in mind; you allow the painting to unfold" Illustrating how to work in layers, Flora gives you the freedom to cover up, restart, wipe away, and change courses many times along the way. Unexpected and unique compositions, color combinations, and subject matter appear as you allow your paintings to emerge in an organic, unplanned way while working from a place of curiosity and letting go of fear. -Learn techniques for working with vibrant color and avoiding mud. -Make rich and varied marks with a variety of unexpected tools. -Break compositional rules. -Embrace nonattachment as a way to keep exploring. -Keep momentum by moving your body and staying positive. -Work with what's working to let go of struggle. -Connect more deeply to the world around you to stay inspired. -Embrace layers to create rich complex paintings. -Find rhythm by spiraling between chaos and order.

About the Author:

Flora S. Bowley's paintings are bold, colorful and rich, while remaining thoughtful, delicate and playful. Her work is created through a unique process of spontaneously layering free flowing color and markmaking with carefully rendered organic forms. These forms or "characters" such as wings, sprouts, stars, hives, branches, petals and pods, comingle with vibrant color fields to tell stories of magical places born from dreams, imagination and a deep connection to all living things. Flora's large work on canvas and smaller works on bamboo are easily recognized and admired by galleries and art lovers across the U.S. She lives and works fulltime as a painter in Portland, Oregon, where she is inspired by magical forests, abundant gardens and a vibrant community of fellow artists. Each winter, she leaves the Northwest rain behind to find inspiration in colorful tropical locations. She is excited to blend her passion for art with her love of yoga and people into her brand new workshops, "Bloom True: Intuitive Painting with Soul!"
