Today: something completely different again.
As you maybe have read before, I was very inspired by the postings of Jane Davies lately. Yesterday she wrote a new blog about 5-minute paintings, and I decided to now try the 5-minute paintings on a larger scale (this time 50/50 cm, that is about 20/20 inch).
That means more paint per minute ;-)
So no painting with leftovers anymore on a small piece of copying paper, I had to really use paint out of the bottle. I indeed painted straight out of the bottle.
The result is a bit 'wobbly' (probably also due to the fact that I used really thin paper, from the Ikea children's painting paper roll. And also my foam brushes are nearly dead.). But anyway: I just loved it!
The ticking time really gives me no time to think or worry about the outcome.
I used really bright 'childlike' colours. Loved to see yellow and red on my paper after all that green and blue from the last months.
These painting are not meant as finished items. Just as start-ups, or as a kind of big sketchbook. I should have painted them on better paper I think: it is not so nice to work further on a piece of paper that is so thin.
So: lots of things to think about...
At least I had fun!
Have a nice day!
Here below you find the four paintings that I made today.
