Despite becoming very old…downright ancient, if you asked a child…. am still feeling 19 plus experience…and occasionally about 6 !
It’s a beautiful morning and am sitting outside at my writing ( and drinking wine) spot…on the bench that james made for eevi. Seems perfectly right.
Yesterday I felt sick and so stayed here all day. As a result I had nothing else to do but this project so I spent more time and energy on it than usual.
I wasn’t quite brave enough to paint on canvas without a paintbrush but I found an old broken brick and my remaining dried roses and decided to use my fingers to paint.
Possibly I should have chosen a slightly less complicated subject but will know the next time.
As you can see in the photos I got a bit stuck just using my fingers to paint and after a while I found an old bit of bamboo in the garden …..then after that I found a Stanley knife and trimmed the bamboo to a nicely sharp point.
I was influenced by looking at eevis paintings where it seems that the depth of colours are very important. And i concentrated on that as well as getting rough shapes.
I quite enjoyed it and it’s joined my ” Old, dead and broken” collection.
Eevi discovered another painting tool….a plastic knife with ridges. These 2 paintings are great…..what next I wonder.
