A True Adventure!


I named this blog "Adventures With Paint" because I envisioned myself on a journey, learning all kinds of different ways to put paint on canvas. Today, this became a real adventure. If you saw my post a couple of days ago, I started this painting with lots of texture, then adding paint. I was just at the stage of adding additional color.

And, of course, after I added the color, I HATED IT!!!!

So, today, this is where I began -- deciding to add some dark rectangles, like the guy in the book.  Taping off the sections, so the lines would be clean.

Well, that only works in theory (at least for me!).  My colors ran, but then I decided that I liked it and made them run more!!

 Once that was done, I realized that I didn't like the way I had made the colors follow the texture - so I decided to do some color blocking.  Of course, I can't paint (or draw) straight, so it all looks kinda wonky.

After working on it some more, I finally came up with something that I like - Imagine That!!  It's still wonky, but for some reason, it doesn't really bother me - I've never liked straight lines anyway!  Beauty is definitely in the Eyes of the Beholder!

This blog begs for a comment and I love wonky too! I think you found a successful conclusion to your adventure and that you should do another one.
