I first attempted to just let the paint drip down from the top but it didn't want to cooperate...1st fail. Then I grabbed some punchinella and started dabbing around...it was OK but not what I wanted in fact I would say...2nd fail. Not to be outdone by this challenge I continued to play around, add some more doodles, went back over the flowers with my black pen...added more white dots...more black dots and the final splashes of gold. It took a couple of days...I would get to a certain point and stop...coming back and looking...adding...going away...coming back...you know the routine. Finally I felt it was complete but the longer I looked at it I knew something was lacking...I ran the edges of the paper through the gold paint and liked how it edged the painting. Now I felt it was finished.
I realized that I needed to let this painting percolate in my mind and that it was ok to keep working on it until it felt right. I also realized that for this challenge I needed to reflect on what I had done. I'm really thrilled with my finished project and I really feel I took this to my Second Floor!
Hope you enjoyed and I would love to hear your thoughts on my painting...thanks for stopping by...
Time to get inky,
