So today I decided to work from Class 2 of "Paint what you see" from OHL ning, by Jeanette House.
This involved stamps and acrylic paint. Many people have suggested using bottle tops to stamp circles with, and I had a "meatball" tray which held possibilities :D
I made a smooshie acrylic paint base layer, over my usual textured gesso layer...
and went nuts with the stamping lol
I am not good at doing "free-flowing lines" (I end up drawing), so I dipped a piece of thread into black paint and just let it fall onto the page randomly...
and this is the finished background I ended up with :D
So now to "Paint what I saw"
I call her "Startled Cow"
She makes me smile like a loon.....she reminds me of those horrifyingly funny moments when you wake up suddenly and don't feel the right way up :D
(or am I the only one who gets those?)
Enjoy :D XXX
