Whoot! Hi everyone! Glad to be back – issues still ongoing, but lets not be moany. I hope you are all having a fine day.
Lemme show you something I have been working on – its poured painting. These shots are all different parts of the same painting.
Remember when I tried the hairdryer paintings, and said I didn’t want to try acrylic poured painting because it involved chemicals and stuff? Well I got some good results just using water and paint.
The thing with this technique is that it changes ALL the time – for example….this shot here no longer exists. It had morphed into something else by the time I had uploaded the picture.
This is at the bottom of the picture and is beginning to dry. When the paint dries, it gets quite muted so I’m going to have to find a varnish that can bring back the vibrance and shine.
We just came back from a few days away. Well….it was supposed to be a “few”, but turned out only to be two. Saturday, Sunday, returning Monday. Now we actually went because of the dog. Let me explain….in a word, Fireworks.
Fireworks are the bane of our lives. From the last week or so in October, through to the middle of November, these things are let off randomly around where we live. Not including the big main “event” on the 5th. Our dog is terrified of them, and scrabbles on the floor, runs around the house, hides in the darkest cupboards, in an effort to escape. She shakes and pants and panics so much, its awful to watch. So, this year we booked a little place in the middle of nowhere, in an effort to get away from them.
It was a log cabin, surrounded by hills and water. (not the cottage pictured though)
Lovely walks in Autumnal woods
Being here was so relaxing and peaceful. But there were still fireworks. So we came home again. Because thats what we do. So far the night seems quiet, so fingers crossed. But the colours at this time of year are quite stunning – my phone doesn’t do them justice, sadly. But still….I love the countryside.
Hubby allowed me to post this – only because “its the back view” he said. He isn’t keen on getting his photo taken, ha!
Good evening lovely readers! I was sorting through some files and found this watercolour I did a while ago. I adore the colours in this. It reminds me of a rock or crystal found in some far way mountains! Just wanted to share with you. I’ll get back to being busy now. 😀 Hope you are having a lovely weekend.
