I haven't painted much lately but last weekend I grabbed some of my favorite colors, payne's gray, raw umber, titan buff, and white, used my fingers and just played. I actually haven't used a brush in a while. I wear gloves though cause I don't want to deal with all that paint on my hands but it still feels good to move the paint around with only my hands. I wish I had taken progression shots so you could see how this began. Typically I do but it went so fast I just wasn't paying attention to photographing it along the way.
Funny that I completed the whole piece horizontal. And after stepping back I decided that I hated it! Then I turned it around and it just felt right. The finger prints in the upper right corner looks like the top of a tree and below the two circles I see a dragonfly. So cool how that happens. I scratched into the paint as I went along. I am not sure if it is completely finished. I feel like I need to add some letters or numbers with my stencil somewhere. Hmmmm . . .
I am sharing over at Paint Party Friday. If you haven't checked that out yet I highly recommend it!! There is always such great work being shared and each week an artist is featured!
Wishing you all a lovely weekend!
