Today I painted on an old painting that I cut in small pieces. Usually it works well, because I then already have an 'interesting background' to paint on.
This time I was less content: I think the lower part of the painting is a bit muddy.
The other thing is that I used cadmium red for the first time. It was from a very old 'artist quality' tube that I had somewhere. Wow - it makes a difference to paint with highly pigmented paint.
I just signed up for a class from Jane Davies about colour. My first painting class ever - I am really looking forward to that!
For that class I need to buy a lot of very expensive artist quality paint. I would not do that so easily, unless somebody forces me;-) !!!
So I am actually looking forward to painting with another quality of paint.
Oh yes: and with the leftover paint I did two five minute paintings.
I actually very much like the expressive quality of those 5-minute-paintings. Very often more than the work that I spend more time on... The 'serious work', so to speak ;-)
Today I liked the second one, with the white paint on top best.
Thanks for visiting, and have a lovely (painting)-day
