The Paper Bag Experiment
I haven't been painting much - last week the painters came, and left after 3 days. I'm still trying to get everything put back together! Also, a couple of grandkids have come to stay for a few days - so everything else is put on hold!
Last Tuesday, Pat gave us all a brown paper lunch bag. We opened it up, then wadded it up, then made it stand up. First, we had to make a drawing of the bag on regular paper. Then, we painted the bag on watercolor paper - using no drawing, just painting form and shapes. It certainly was an interesting experience!
I worked some on the tulips from the previous post. It's a little harder than the butterflies, cause instead of negative painting, I have to do positive painting! Go figure! It's still in the ugly stage, though. Not sure when it will ever see the light of day!
