This month’s Create with Intuition prompt is “Transformation”, a powerful concept found in both nature and our personal journeys, offering a rich source of inspiration for artists. As we transition into the month of May, we witness nature’s transformation in the form of blooming flowers, buzzing bees, and the emergence of new life. These changes can be seen as a metaphor for personal growth and transformation, making them a particularly relevant theme for artists to explore in their work.

Intuitive Prompt: “Transformation”
- How have you personally experienced transformation in your life? Try channelling those experiences and emotions into your artwork to create a piece that resonates with your journey.
- Can you think of a story or myth that involves transformation? Use it as inspiration for your artwork, capturing the essence of the story through your own unique artistic interpretation.
- Have you experienced evolution and transformation as an artist? Reflect on your artistic growth and consider how you can express this journey in your current piece.
- What emotions or feelings do you associate with transformation? Explore these emotions through your artwork, using them to guide your creative process.
- How can you capture nature’s seasonal changes in your artwork? Consider depicting the shifting colors, patterns, and textures that reflect the cycle of life and renewal.
Visual Prompt: Flowers
Photo Collection for Inspiration
As the visual cue for this month is flowers, I’ve curated a collection of beautiful flower images from Unsplash to help inspire your creations.
I have created the tutorial video above to showcase one interpretation of the intuitive prompt and visual prompt. My interpretation is just one possible way to approach this month’s prompts – I encourage you to follow your own intuition and create something uniquely your own. Use this video as a source of inspiration and a starting point for your own creative exploration.

I want to encourage you to use any brushes that you want to for these prompts! Just take a deep breath, think about the prompts, and grab whatever brushes are calling to you in that moment without thinking too much about why. In my version, I ended up making a background with my Painterly brush set, then adding Pressed Flowers and Greenery.
