Lucia paints but prefers to draw because it is an immediate and raw response. Which can create some beautiful paintings. She draws intuitively and doesn't question herself. She doesn't prepare more than cutting a piece of paper and opening up her box of pastels.
She finds an image she is attracted to. She finds a song to go with it. She puts on her headphones. With the tune on repeat she lets serendipity take hold with gesture and intuition. As she works, the music breaks down inhibitions. It all comes together when the logic meets her own thoughts, memories, feelings and internal dialogue.
"So the music I listen to as I draw is a tool to let the heart lead and have it's say and to stop the minds control ... this method keeps the mind distracted and quiet, and the drawing raw and immediate. Ifind my trust in what the heart has to say is rewarded with accurate logic in the form, feeling of line, colour, tone, energy, mood, movement, composition, and emotional content."
