Today’s painting really did not go to plan, my mind was not on the task, and I ended up over working, putting paint in unplanned areas, well generally a mess. After dry I did manage to pull it back a little into something I could vaguely accept.
However after deciding today was not a great painting day, but still wanting/ needing to paint ( weird I know) I decided to create some backgrounds ready for some hares etc for Hampshire open studio. This was great, playing with colour became relaxing, and enjoyable, and I had something useful for another day. Some of the backgrounds will be used with pastel, as I don’t expect watercolour will cover the amazing colourful creations. I would usually plan backgrounds by conserving the white space, but hey this was so much fun….for the record this was the wonderful dylon fabric dye that created the stunning effects.
