Today I worked further on the theme that I started yesterday: black/white contrast, green shapes. I like the 'spacy' atmosphere it breathes. Like planets in space ;-)
The other thing that I did was doing a 5-minuts-painting. I was inspired to do so by artist Jane Davies, who is a real inspiration for me, and who offers very generously a lot of her art and techniques on her website .
So I took a simple piece of paper (just copying-paper).
Took my leftovers on my palet from the first painting.
Put my timer on 5 minutes and started painting!
Actually I cheated for 20 seconds, since at the end I missed a contrast between all this green and blue. And I knew already that I did not like the red crayon since it is too harsh (see my experiment yesterday).
So for the first time since ages I took the ocre crayon.
Which worked pretty well I think.
Here below is the 5-minute-painting...
Oh: and below that I posted the process of the first painting. I like taking pictures in between the stages of the painting, so I might well bore you with it;-).
thank you for visiting!
Here below is the process of the first painting. The first red stage is a leftover from an earlier painting. See yesterday...)
