Help keeping us calm.
I'm getting the feel for Gouache painting and enjoying it very much.
Just as I say this I'm about to move into the other room and hit a huge canvas big time!
Acrylic and the mind switch, paint the canvas black first and just wait...
tomorrow grid it out, sketch it in white on the canvas, Tuesday as my first bits of color & then I hope to work on it straight through this weekend.
At the same time I have just started to sketch my idea for a 'redrawing' of a postcard I did, 'Sativa - Indica'. Now that my style has changed I have been wanting to re paint that image- it has me thinking of details of night and dark, every aspect an opportunity for painting pleasurable experience surrounded by dark, light & love.
I'm very spontaneous if you have not realized... sure enough last week, I had someone offer to pay me for an original and they had mentioned they liked the Sativa/Indica one in particular. I shared it was sold but expressed I was considering painting something like it - if they are interested they could commission me and I provided a price. 'Duke' - his name & part of my reasoning for saying yes, made a payment to my paypal account and it was a push I needed. Just researching - is exciting. I was so happy , I put some of that income to good use and signed up for a new Craftsy class!
It looks exciting and difficult- I'm ready! I KNOW after this class my skills will increase, never stop learning, a new twist, idea, perspective is refreshing.
Now it's time to have fun & get lost in paint BIG TIME! Perfect for this blustery day!!
