So it was hot and more paint dried on my palette than got on the canvas, but I worked for another 3 hours today. Its still at its ugly stage but plenty to be done
I have given landscapes to exhibitions and sold others so I need to paint for a local exhibition. People like and understand them more than abstracts and I like painting them too. This one has taken 3 hours or so to map out and mix the colours. There will be a lot more work done before its finished.
Had a lovely play today. Feels so liberating. My live Facebook was just about ok, but I wasn’t happy, I forgot a few things and my camera stand was difficult to manover, and I overdid a drawing, a sure sign my mind went out of gear, ha ha anyway back to today’s painting it will be on Bluethumb soon for sale.
I really enjoyed painting yesterday. I painted 2 together and was really in the mood, not second guessing myself and I think it shows. I’ve uploaded one of them to Bluethumb, the second in a couple of days.
Here’s the second. I painted in my usual style of putting down some colours and working intuitively follow where they led me.
The paper I use is really strong University Cartridge paper . Poster size.
China has been suffering horrendous flooding and other major calamities in the last 2 months. I’m hoping that it will hold the CCP in check but really feel for all the people suffering there. So this painting came together today, I think its appropriate for our times.
