Reality is only a Rorschach ink-blot, you know.

@ashiqsir Paint blot art works (just like inkblots from the Rorschach test) are great as they do not require any artistic skill to create. Blot pictures can help you to tap into how you are feeling and help you to make meaning as you talk about what you see in your blots. The blots are just blobs and splats on paper however the human mind loves to make meaning. We constantly make meaning of things all day long, our mind fills in the gaps that are missing pieces and invents new meaning out of what it can see or know. Paint blotting can help you to work around your logical brain to access your more creative right side brain. What you can see in a paint blot can be the starting point for a short story or even the beginnings of a more developed painting yet to be created. Once you have created your ink blot picture you will almost immediately start to see images within it such as monsters, butterflies, people dancing, flowers, animals, landscapes. You may quite possibly see how embellishing your picture could bring out an image even further. Once you have made your blot piece stand back and take a look, turn it upside down. This exercise is almost like looking for shapes in clouds. You might even see a couple of different things within your painting, it may depend on what way your artwork is turned as to what you can see. How does the image you created represent something that you have been feeling, experienced, or need to know? We are all storytellers and meaning makers, there will always be something to discover. Grab yourself a pad and pen to record your observations and start to journal about your discoveries. Make a list of things you see in this paint blot. Speak from the drawing as if your blot picture held a message for you. Don’t think too much about it just feel into your work and listen to what it is telling you. Write the story from the images you can see. There is no right or wrong, this is simply up to you to invent and to use your imagination!
