pootling with paper. The inks and acrylic paints came out of hibernation and I got to know them again. Usually when I am in a creative mood I try to produce something - an end result - a finished project. This time I just applied paints to Artists Trading Cards (ATC's) sized paper without any pre-conceived idea of what I would do with the paper after. I got some surprising results especially looking at the dramatic colour palette I had chosen and of the bold, thickly applied strokes, and I always thought I was a pastel and somewhat subdued flower!
A few years back I took up water colour painting classes for one morning a week. Although I progressed through the course I used to get frustrated that my paintings often looked wishy-washy due to the amount of water added to the paint. I gave up the classes when I had reached saturation point in what I was gaining from doing the course.
A few years on, I am no longer limiting myself to water colour paints. There is a World of all sorts of colouring mediums out there for me to try.
I cannot finish this post without acknowledging the kind and positive comments left to me on my last post. Your words really helped to put me into a positive mindset. With the positivity came the creativity. Thank you. x
