I love to paint and draw as you guyes know. I had the correct size canvas here, I had paints. I had an idea. I wanted to do another sailboat picture. I had done one when I was a kid before I quit painting and for some reason I wanted to do another one.
So I picked up one of the canvases that I had already had made the background funky. Started painting the sky blue, like the clouds. I opened my white tube of paint and it was stopped up. So I sqqqqquuuuueeeeezzzzzzeeeedddd and plop. . . a big ole spot of white had pooped out. I thought. hmmm, this is the sun. and I added a little yellow and more white. Already had a blue water line. Then I let it dry. I work in oils. So it take a day or 6 to dry.
I walked back by a few days later and decided it was dry enough but it needed something. So I pulled out the green and made trees. Then added some white/yellow and gave them highlights.
I let it alone.
Came back the next day and I thought. This reminds me not of water but of the mountains in New Mexico at night.
Here is what it looked like.
It's a touchy feely painting. Those are my favorite kinds. I hope the person that gets it likes it.
Anyway for all you artists, David Pringle has this every year. So get ready for next year.
Have a jolly good kackle letting ideas come to mind!
