(Sanford Birdsey always said BIG BRUSH) randomly stroked some paint on - no need to cover canvas all neat and tidy just throw some paint on. I used this blue RUSTOLEUM that had kind of thickened and it was fun!!! It took awhile to dry the paint was so thick. I just looked at it for a few days thinking of how I wanted to draw my subject on the canvas....read more Flora.... so just took a sponge brush and swirled in an outline with some patchie fill in. Let it dry and looked at it for a couple days. I really only paint in the morning before I go to work, so it's not like I have a big block of time. I am NOT a get it done at night person. Anyways the process continued like that - threw some more paint on with my hands. Just sliding my fingers thru the paint and up and down the canvas - it felt so wonderful - like I was putting a part of me into Mason's painting.
I feel like this painting is mine, using the techniques and inspiration from Flora Bowley's book: Brave Intuitive Painting.
|the m.a.w. is supposed to look carved into the boat, Mason date of birth -the painting is signed Grams in lower corner|
