New prints - a (slightly wilting) May bouquet
Updated: Jun 22, 2020
This week I was feeling paint, although not sure it was feeling me...
So I picked up a paintbrush and painted some flowers I had bought a few days ago in a vase (not a vase as such, an inherited Costa glass, buying a vase is on my long-list). I wasn't in love with the results but sometimes it's about the process and siting at my desk in the sunshine playing with paint was satisfaction itself. Especially the gold ink. There is a reason anything glittery has a reputation for fun.
Below are said results, and yes that is a bit of paper stuck to one of the flowers, I guess I wasn't very precious over this artwork and I thought I'd go with it...
I would like some more painterly prints in the repertoire, but it is a fickle media. I think where things are working here are where there is more movement and tonal colours. No one likes muddy colours The last few are interesting which I take as a sign to continue with the fun metallic ink!
