I find I wait until my paint clothes are on and I am in the studio and ready to work to open to the inspiration of what action to take.
I have found lately my inspiration for what color to apply next has had an interesting correlation to the nail varnish color I am wearing on the day.

Mauve Gray

It didn't occur to me until I had posted a couple of photo's on social media over the course of a couple of weeks, that this is what was happening. 
I have no preference for how I am inspired, intuition has always been my guide for what color or technique I will apply in any given session. Lately when asking my higher self 'what next' my eyes have found the answer right in front of my varnish!
