After six weeks of "Summer of Colour" I was looking forward to making art with my own colours.
So what do I do? Make art for "Mix it Monthly" where the theme is "Boat" and the following colours are requested.
I'm also linking to "Paint Party Friday".
I set out in a very logical manner:
drew several little thumbnail pictures and eventually chose this one,
readied my watercolour box and paint brushes for action
and selected oil pastels in the required colour scheme.
Eagle eyes will notice that in addition to my favoured Sennelier oil pastels I am also trying out the Gallery make and there is one Neopastel here.
I also used a sheet of cartridge paper far larger than I normally use, 17 x 11 inches.
And here's what happened by Saturday evening.
A STRANGE SHIP SAILS INTO THE HARBOUR BY DAY
and by using the wonders of photo-editing
A STRANGE SHIP SAILS INTO THE HARBOUR BY NIGHT
Good painting, bad painting? I've absolutely no idea, and it's a very strange ship indeed, but I quite like it.
