An abstract from yesterday's painting session...
The red pieces of paper are just craft paper i buy at the dollar store...
No need for anything fancy.
Never too sure where it's going,
and that's always exciting to me.
And i use whatever i have nearby to create any sort of texture.
In this case, an expired medicare card, dipped in paint. :-)
The whole thing was just too red and gold for me,
so i added these blotches of turquoise for contrast.
Yes, it's a squiggly angel. :-)
i love the effect of the white over the bits of red paper...
I basically just used the card on an angle,
scraping the white paint downwards.
Abstract is all about playing and exploring.
Nothing needs to look like anything,
although if it does, that's ok too.
In this case, it kinda looks like a holy mess.
After that, i needed a bit more structure...
Found a photo in a magazine that i liked,
and did this watercolor in my mini Moleskin book.
A mother's love for her child...
At least that's what i see...
Wishing you all a wonderful week!
