Name the Painting-Painting by Intention
Before you start, give your painting a working title. Remind yourself to refer back to your original inspiration--what do you want to communicate in your painting? For example you could use a literal title such as "The Green Door," which could describe a place: real or imaginary. An alternative would be a metaphor for feeling, such as "Adventurous and Free." Celebrate what your title means. Think of colors that relate to the title, shapes that evoke your intention. Staying focused on your main idea is like following a road map and helps keep you on track.
