I see inspiration, and on a whim before I even have time to think about how
crazy it would be to start another new project I'm knee deep into it...you too? :)
Want to see it? Of course, it's not finished I just started this afternoon!
Warning: To my artist friends, it would probably be best if you just skipped this
post today, I'm sure you'll be cringing or laughing.
I LOVE abstracts, but I knew I couldn't paint one, so I decided to take an old one
I had and paint over it...sounds easy enough...ha!
The beginning...with my sophisticated tools, I used my fingers to paint and I thought the
blow dryer would spread the paint giving it the watercolor look. Nope, it made the squiggles.
Sorry, bad lighting the colors aren't so muddy.
Hmm...I think I'll go for more purple...
Oops...not quite what I had in mind. I know I need to keep layering, and it's
looking a tad foreboding, I'll lighten it up a bit...like the white I painted over.
Maybe more watercolor look vs. finger paint look?
Any suggestions? I'm really no painter, and I haven't a clue.
Have you started any projects on whim lately?
