I worked on and off all day on my beach painting.
Today I wondered if improving the sea might help. So I got on the app again and scribbled a few waves. It looked better……?
At that point I decided to go out and buy wine. And treat myself to a cappuccino as it was my son’s 37th birthday.
Back home with 3 bottles of wine and I began to paint waves on the sea.
Quite soon afterwards I thought it might be a good idea to watch a video on how to paint waves.
I found a suitable one. ( short and no jargon.)
I watched a bit, stopped it and then had a try painting my main wave. Then I checked out the colour of the sea and changed it. After that I kept on going along with the video.
Around this time my new tube of turquoise paint was delivered.
It was interesting working with the video.
Eventually I thought that I had done enough for today. My main wave looked much better, as did the wave on the beach.
So I went to the supermarket and noticed that some of the prices are most definitely about 50% more than previously.
Regardless, I bought a chocolate cake… to celebrate my son’s birthday of course. It was also cheaper than an Easter egg which I briefly considered.
When I came back into my house the first thing I saw was my painting.
I heard myself say , in a surprised voice, “That’s lovely!”
What a relief!.
Now all I have to do is paint the edges and resist trying to improve anything.
The sun has returned.
Am proud of myself for keeping going until I was finally happy with my painting.
Now it’s wine ….and chocolate cake …time.
