Welcome to Paint Walk

This site is about getting inspiration from walking and using your eyes and ears to express yourself.

Taking a walk is one of the best ways for me to take creativity from the environment I'm in.

For me it involves clearing my mind of any thoughts other than the immediate sensations of my surroundings. 

Removing other thoughts allows me to forget everything but the moment or present time I exist in.

This is not the same as walking around in a haze, it is more an attempt to move only in the sensational present.

That is to be as aware as possible of sight, sound, touch, smell, temperature and taste.

The pace of the walk is controlled by these sensations and the exercise helps to concentrate the mind.

When the walk is over and I move back into my normal life, the time for creativity should begin.

Reflections on any notes, sensations, pictures or sounds that have remained from the walk will hopefully allow creative associations to begin.

The application of reflection on sensations allows a more balanced space and allows any creativity there to find an escape.
