I wish it looked like more progress had been made. Don't you hate that? Work your buns off all weekend and it doesn't look like much has changed? It's like, I remember painting, and doing all this stuff, why does it all look the same? Blah.
One thing I did finish, however, is a painting for the living room.
Some day I'll get around to showing you the whole room. The only reason I haven't done it yet is because it's usually too embarrassingly messy to photograph. Some day, SOME DAY, however I will keep it clean enough for 2 seconds to make it photograph worthy.
Some day. Some day?
I'm liking the colors and the subtle textures and colors of my new painting.
The canvas is homemade. It's a wood frame with drop cloth stapled to it. Next you use primer or gesso to seal the cloth. Let it dry. Then it's ready to create your masterpiece! ha!
I just used leftover wall paint and dabbed in on with a rag. Old fashioned faux painting style!
Use lots of paint and lots of colors. The texture creates interest. I used a blue-gray color, a green gray color, a green, a turquoise, white and black in this painting.
Oh hang on, I gotta break up a fight.
Ok. I'm back. Isn't he pathetic? Sweet, but pathetic.
Nice, right? Not hard. Give it a shot!
