Here I go again with the knocked back colour, lost edges and calming subject. I love it when people feel happy when they look at my work. They actually say that.
I also like a painting you can keep going back to, remembering something from your past. A boat ride, a tree shape, a bird call, a walk with a friend. You can live forever with a painting like that.
Glenys was very helpful with this one. I was certainly on a new pathway. I knew where I wanted to go, but not how to get there. So we talked about anything that needed to be changed or added and so on. I now feel it is telling it’s own story.
This time I’ve used acrylic paint put on with a brush (rather than the layers and glazing), then softened around the edges with a damp sponge or brush. It’s quite slow, but very rewarding.
I have the next canvas ready to start. But I’m on my own again. Amelie will have to give me advice now.
