When I sketch or paint I usually relax my thinking mind and work from a place of childlike innocence and joy. Initially I allow myself to be led by intuition only, always paying close attention to the negative space, from which I then start defining shape and color until the image gradually emerges and feels complete to me.
Whatever I create, I never try to mimic reality. My intention instead is to capture the “spirit” of what caught my attention in the first place, and finding ways to express that by accumulating paint and lines, inspiring the viewer to interact by filling the gaps with their own interpretation of what they observe and feel.
To draw is to tell. Everyone who feels emotion has something to tell. Emotions keep on changing, growing, as children do. My drawings and stories change with them.Beatrice Allemagna
