From the Easel

I have fallen a little behind this week as I have had things to do! But I did have an hour to spare last night so decided to reinvent myself as an abstract artist rather than write the blog. A little while ago I showed you this "painting" which I had made from left over paint.

I didn't know what to do with this work of art so decided just to paint and not think too much- just let instinct take over. I quickly found myself doing a landscape with sunset which is not a surprise as I like to paint the setting sun - it's fun. I also found myself painting with my fingers, no brush. And this is what I did.

Certainly very different for me. So my advise to all the painters who follow my blog. Just forgot about everything and go for it. Yes I have noticed the horizon is on a slop - so was I when I had finished!

My palette consisted of:
Titanium White
Cadmium Yellow
Windsor Orange
French Ultramarine
Rose Madder
Flinders Blue Violet
Yellow Ochre

See you tomorrow with something a little more interesting.
