Where does spontaneity come from?

What is: “controlled spontaneity”.
I suspect that the “controlled” part of the phrase has to do with tossing out the notion that spontaneity “just happens” out of nowhere– it arises out of structure.

For spontaneity to occur, there need to be clear boundaries.

And, as Picasso said, it takes a long time to see, to paint like a child. It takes a long time to internalize form, so that you can draw freely from it in the moment, as in this example below:
It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child. –––(Picasso).
