Good grief, my house is a wreck. (Of course messy house usually means happy creative me.) Watercolors and gesso are still sloshing about after Wednesday's abstract flower project. I'm experimenting with gesso as a sort of "blending agent", giving watercolor pigments a different quality and moving them about the page. Everything dries fairly quickly so I have to work fast, which helps me get out of my head a little more.
The result is quite soft and painterly if you don't overdo it. (Overdoing it results in mud.)
In other news...
(a random fact about my life)...
I must have been in a choppin' kind of mood yesterday because on a whim I got eight inches of hair cut off! No one's around to take my picture this morning so I took a goofy self portrait to show you. I am a new woman!
This weekend is shaping up to be a fun one. The weather should be just about perfect for the Art Walk in town and lots of gardening will happen at our place. I want to plant plenty of pretty things to sketch and paint over the summer. Anything fun going on at your place this weekend? I hope it's a good one!
