new painting
This one was started a couple of weeks ago. Torn pieces of newspaper are arranged randomly over the canvas and outlined with pencil, then the lines are painted.

My plan was to have neutral colours ranging from off-white, to creams, light tan and a splash of orange ... but it had other ideas (just like quilts do)! I'm quite enjoying the direction this one is going with some transparent layers of colour.

Next step will be to paint out some of the lines so they recede or disappear, leaving others to come forward.

I'm enjoying trying the different techniques ... but last class for this term is next week :-(  I will miss it during the 2 week break.

Thanks for visiting!
