I wasn’t kidding when I said that this mural was taking over my life, otherwise why would I be awake at 4am stressing over which colours to use in the background
Eventually I gave up trying to sleep and decided which colours I might use in the background. Maybe…..
Then I had a really good idea about 8am . I would print a photo of the mural yesterday and then paint on the colours etc which I might use.
What a very useful exercise that was ! I changed several things for the better as well as trying out the background colour.
However an A4 photo and a large wall are not the same
To say I struggled with the background would be putting it mildly. But a little part of me must have known that if I just kept going it would eventually work out.
It did. After a lot of struggling and painting over and wondering what on earth to do.
I also painted the pink tree which looks respectable.
And the hydrangeas which look perfect.
Tomorrow I should be crossing the bridge……..
It was a lovely evening for walking home down the corsa. I stopped in to buy carrots. I’ll miss these walks home ,and realistically there is no way I’ll be going out in the evening just for a walk.
It’s very pleasant being tired after working.
Candles, blues and wine now.
