Day 4 of 30 paintings in 30 days


I'm once again linking with Leslie Saeta's Slices of Life 30 paintings in 30 days project.

This  painting took two days to complete mostly because of the drying time between layers.  Don't you just love humidity?

The first layer was lavender and pearl white mixed together.  Today I added the black acrylic, then sprayed areas with distilled water.  I love how the paint moved around once the water was applied.  I'm really happy with this piece.

I'm calling this one "Running in Circles."

Gorgeous colours! I love this title as it's exactly what I'm up to at the moment! Off to the hygienist then off to the caravan for the weekend, running around trying to get stuff done! May not be able to keep up for a few days but I am so impressed by what you are doing, Chrisxx

Running in circles--not always getting where we want to go, some starts and stops, but if we persevere, and keep going, we will get there. Okay, the humidity is getting to me! (Smile)

I read your comment about the 52 card challenge and agree totally with you. I'm taking a wait and see attitude and plan to use her tutorial/techniques to make each card my own. I am hoping that she encourages this and not rather straight copying since I'm not planning to buy any supplies if I don't need to.

see you there! said...

Like this one a lot, like the way the paint bleeds, perfect title too.

Deep and meaningful...the circle. Looks like you are tapping into your inner self.
