I’ve made a few of these in the past that turned out well; oddly that was before I even read any instructions on how to do it. So I watched a few pretty incredible ones last night. Glad I was able to quickly spot my mistakes. Learn, grow, evolve 😌
Last week I wrote about the constantly appearing Hearts in my paintings – it began not long after I started Love Infusion. And lo & behold here’s another one!
Heyyyy … look, left on the heart; I see 4 outstretched fingers – is that a little hand waving, or saying hello? Maybe for the funky gold dude (bottom-left) who seems to be reaching towards it? Mind you he could very well just be holding a fork 🤣😂 Again I over-mixed, & too much medium, paint not adhering to the canvas.
Next, ‘Wild Horses?’ Ok, ‘Wild Horse?
Same, started well but over mixed, & too much medium left bare spots; & you can see small blue clumps, bottom left – I need to take my time, really mix it properly.
And..🥁..drum roll please..🥁.. same thing here. Oopsie loll
A lot of that green kind of evaporated; too much medium, got bare spots again. But that’s what’s so awesome about abstract! You can continuously add on the spots you consider ‘ugly.’ You just keep going until you don’t see anything you consider ‘ugly‘ anymore, & Voila! You have a finished painting!
- Ratio of medium to paint too high, paint did not adhere in certain areas (s/b no more than 50/50)
- Dark blue showing a few small random clumps – didn’t mix it enough. Signs of impatience? What, moi??🙈😌
- Red & blue? Definitely not the colors I should put together for this – the purple went gray in some areas & looked awful
I’m off to my studio. Round 2 & these learned lessons. More paint⬆️ Less medium⬇️
Try! Believe in Yourself! You can do absolutely anything if you tell yourself you can. But continue to say you can’t – without ever trying – & you never will🕉
