You know how sometimes you've just got to paint something?
I wanted to make a piece for the theme "In the Garden" at "Moo-Mania".
I usually have a plan before I start, even if it is only an two-inch size thumbnail sketch.
But for this I got out my trusty oil pastels
and just started.
At this stage it often looks as if an extremely untalented one year old child has played with her mother's crayons.
We have to trust that it will get better and continue.
Next step was using the watercolours.
This sometimes brings the painting to life (sometimes makes it even worse).
Then stamps, stamp pads, watercolour pens and other pens came out
and we ended up here.
It's not too bad when you look back at the start.
Of course I had to have a bit of fun with Photo-editing and that's how the garden got a pond.
"Moo-Mania", theme "In the Garden" and
"Paint Party Friday".
