I find it so easy to get wrapped up in my “painting straight-jacket”. Then all of a sudden I’ll decide to strip it off and actually enjoy the process of creating and painting again. It’s as though I feel I need to please, but then who am I pleasing, if not myself?
So, it took it back to basics this morning and decided to start with colour wheels. I did several colour wheels, then decided to start a painting with a selection of alizarin crimson, ultramarine blue and pure yellow. Different brands have different names, but that’s what I have.
I let loose and was reasonably happy with the result. Tomorrow I will start again! Every exercise is a step closer and the journey is good!
