in an old tin,
so I thought I'd give them a try at making a Klee-inspired painting.
Half-way through I said "this is totally awful" (although that's not exactly what I said), screwed it up into a tight ball, still wet, and threw it in the waste-paper basket.
The only reason it wasn't actually burnt was because the fire was not lit yet.
Later, I took it back out.
Smoothed it out.
Did some more painting.
Played with the photo-editing programs for a bit.
And here's the result.
In Edinburgh when they are modernising the insides of buildings, to preserve the street frontage they sometimes leave only the fronts standing while knocking down the whole of the insides; that's what's happened to the buildings at the back here, and there's a nice bit of paint texture appearing from the scrumpling.
If you're wondering what Paul Klee had to do with it, I had previously sketched out some of his images and used them very loosely as inspiration.
I hope it gave you a bit of a laugh.
