I played with paint and water last night. I let my 4-year-old self drip and splatter and it was wonderful!
Over the weekend I sorted through and bagged up some art supplies I’m not using to pass along to someone who will use them with an after school program. Some old paint got tossed out.
I was going shopping for new art supplies and I wanted to have a place to put them..
These are the first baby-steps in an e-course I’m taking, Hello Soul, Hello Mixed-Media Mantras, which you are going to see more about as I go along. Actually, the very first steps are journaling. The artist, author, and creator of the course, Kelly Rae Roberts, gives the participants lots of prompts and guidance and it’s good stuff. But I was excited to get my fingers into paint last night.
My intention (and pardon the poor lighting – it was one little lamp over my craft desk):
These are practice pieces, to just play with the paint and the different techniques. I’m using acrylic paint on watercolor paper (140 lb.).
First drips of paint.
Smearing, smooshing, spraying with water. Drips.
I did three playground pieces.
Here’s what I made:
Thanks for the visit.
