“There are no rules in art, just consequences.” – Carol Marine.
I’m glad I did the base coat this bright orange, it makes the whole thing glow. This whole week has been very lazy. I caught my husband’s cold and am such a wimp when I’m sick, so all I did was lay in bed or eat. Rough life. Anyways, I got up from my after church nap and sat down to sew more Christmas presents but it just didn’t feel right. I wanted to paint. So I sat at my easel and messed with some still life items, the norms….glass….fruit….But all I wanted to paint was crazy shadows and fun negative space. Go figure. So I grabbed this long-reaching branch and casted some shadows and just started throwing paint on. I made three different ‘greys’ but they don’t read different in the painting – one thing I would go back and adjust. I just LOVE painting the spaces in between the leaves and around the shadows. And it felt good to just paint today. It’s been a few days.
