Messing about with paint – Day 3

On day 3 of the challenge I stuck with acrylic paints, as I enjoyed them so much on the first day.

After painting this piece I became stuck on what to do with it next. So I left it alone and tried blocking areas to see what I like about it. I placed ‘L’ shaped pieces of black paper onto the surface, moving them around until I saw something that attracted me.

Mmmmm…. not sure about it but it seems quite lively.

Don’t mind this one but I can’t say I’m super engaged with it.

Again, I’m not sure. Is there something missing or is it a case of ‘less is more’?

What did I learn today? It’s fun mucking around with paint but let’s not get too excited – I think the whole exercise is revealing that in my heart I’m not a painter, printmaking is the way to go for me.

I'm a passionate printmaker, paper-maker and a poor sketcher (which I'm working to improve). I've stitched from early childhood and am a perpetual student, loving learning and participating in everything creative.
