Colour!

For AGES now - and I mean YEARS - I've wanted to sling some paint at a canvas and just see what happens.

So I did.

I had absolutely nothing to lose - the canvas was from the charity shop, and originally had a very dodgy "seascape" painted on it.  (First job was covering said seascape with white paint!)

Then I donned an art shirt, covered all surfaces, opened the tubes of acrylic and let rip:


Loving it so far!

The next photo was taken at the "I just ruined it" phase:


And this is the "I think I must be finished soon" phase:


And with a few more tweaks, I finally finished:


(The light is a bit bright in the last photo - sorry).

There was a spare canvas (dodgy sunset, duly overpainted) - so the Girl had a go too!


She calls it "Caterwauling Cats"!

And in other news, there is now FOIL in the shop!
(Just blue/green for now - shall I do gold/silver/bronze next, or pinks and purples?!)

  5. Goods grief woman! This is fab (and the cats are pretty cool too!) And after all that sketch booking too. Now I feel ever so slightly inadequate!

  6. I am in awe of your painting! You're a natural, and I hope you keep it up.

    That design would make gorgeous fabric, too. :)

  9. Both would look great hanging on a wall....well done girls :-)

    I'm learning to embrace the 'I've just ruined it phase' - happens every time. I see it as a challenge now......
