Helps with understanding of emotions expressed by an artwork.
Steve Macks Dilley : "I start with an idea but it is the intuition that leads me. I know it is right and true when I can feel it in my 'gut'."
Kay Ruffini: "Intuition is the essence of the whole creative process. If art isn't about feelings, then what is its purpose? Everything starts with intuition."
Picasso told a friend that intuition was like having a carrier pigeon with a message land on your balcony. "The important thing is knowing that the pigeon has arrived," he said, "you don't have to unroll the message and read it."
