Sometimes life gets crazy
and days and days pass
and I have not done anything artistic for ages,
in these times I especially appreciate the arrival of a travelling art journal,
because it puts me back in touch with my art supplies
and comes with a theme and I can do anything I want
-it is a great way to pick up the brush and start playing.
I hadn't painted a canvas for a long time but it was coming up to gifting season and I also had an exhibition looming so I posted a challenge for colour blocking on our Australian Art Swap Group on Facebook and I shared this video.
and this one too
and I jumped right in with this underlayer.
Next came the colour blocking part I really wanted to try.
This how it turned out in the end
and it also turned out to want
to go and live with a very special girl who loves it :)
Thankfully for me
because I seem to have lost confidence in my hiatus
so that will be what I am looking for next.
