This is like being at Yoga. Breathe deeply and let go. Painting is like that too. You can get so tight and labour the work till you can’t find that wonderful spontaneity and freshness. So I let go, and did something with lovely pure colour and simply let the design find itself.

Once again I used pieces from my sketches to create a story, then worked the colours and textures to connect the parts.

So much fun and it does take you away from the usual constraints ( self imposed ) to somewhere you’ve never been before.

I have a canvas at least 3 times bigger to let loose on next. Yippee.
