I've finished my blanket and the days are getting sunnier.
It'll be lovely for cool evenings, or as a rug to sit on outside?
The sun is encouraging my perpetual spinach, just look at all that greenery sprouting forth. The lavender seeds in the tray on the right are being a little more cautious and who can blame them when the sun teases us so much, one moment there, then the next moment a distant memory?
My painting continues. I'm having fun layering coloured tissue paper onto the acrylic. It gives instant colour and if you don't like it, you can paint straight over!
Here's another painting I'm working on.
This one is using the same technique of tissue with acrylic. I like to work on more than 1 painting at a time because I can give each one a chance to dry a bit before thinking about the next stage. These are very different subjects to one another aren't they? I don't know why that happened. I know some artists have several very similar paintings on the go and any one time but I find I jump from one subject to the next.
Birds have been a fairly constant theme of mine. I wonder if they'll appear in my harbour picture? I shall let you know.
