Am not quite sure if I saw it on youtube or read it somewhere recently but someone recommended a yellowish base to paint on. So now I have 10 canvases of all sizes painted with a mixture of white house paint and some yellow and raw sienna acrylic. It looks very pretty and…. ready.
I only meant to paint 4 canvases but I got a bit carried away and found some others lying about. And I had mixed up too much paint so didn’t like to waste it.
This morning I finished making my latest canvases by stapling the canvas on to the stretchers. I could do to learn how to do corners better but am not very good at following instructions including the words – left, right, any numbers or diagonals.
It’s quite difficult to concentrate tonight as I am sitting outside again and along with the jazz I can hear people talking at the end of the street. There are some very loud birds making a racket in the big tree, dogs barking and someone revving up their scooter.
Now a car has driven into my street and parked nearly at my house. That is unusual followed by what looks like a repair or delivery van.
I don’t think anyone can see me sitting here as I am inside the doorway and also screened by my plants.
I’m tired tonight. It feels like it’s been a long day and tomorrow I have plans for four new paintings.
