The energy is transmitted. If one feels it, the public perceives it in the painting. Daniella Sukaczer, p98 The unparalleled competition showcase for outstanding acrylic artists! Creative energy is the driving force of what it means to be an artist, and how an artist chooses to use that energy is what sets one apart from the others. Some may choose energetic brush strokes creating movement that seems to dance across the canvas. Others may select colours that represent a feeling behind their emotional energy for a particular work. Or creative energy may take a more behind-the-scenes role, where only the artist knows the source of inspiration.
