As I posted on my blog yesterday, there is bound to be a success if you keep plugging away! So today I returned to the studio, determined to try again. Then another photo caught my eye and I decided to play with the acrylics again. I just tried to respond, grabbed a surface, got the drawing on and started applying paint. All the while just thinking, "what if"....what if I tried this technique???, what if I tried this color?...what will I get if I mix these?...I don't have the red I want or the right colors to make it, so what if I change my plan? will the painting still work?
Fun, learning and I think, a successful painting day!
# 25 The Calico Barn
6 x 6" acrylic on museum mat board $75
(Looks like there is a blue cast....may be my monitor, but it may also be the cool bouncing light from my north window in the studio when I photographed it.)
Thanks for looking and I hope you find your success today! Ruth Ann
