Well, I return after over a year of inactivity. I have been volunteering as Chair of the Docent Program at the Indianapolis Museum of Art and my time and energy have been committed to several projects leaving me little time to paint. I know…whine, whine, whine! Well here I am and, as usual, after time off I feel like I have forgotten everything I ever knew. I have decided to start slow – you might say VERY slow – and to focus on my love of color. I found a book of stained glass patterns and pulled out my set of Pelikan paints to start.
I feel like a tyke just starting! And as I painted I realized that I still have one of my bad habits. Some of us never learn!
I want to focus on things I love and I love the sea so I tried to use a limited palette of blues and greens with yellow representing the glint of the sun on the water. This was simple and I did much better managing my round rather than my chisel point brush. I decided to keep notes about my intention with each work. I definitely need a refresher! I hope you enjoy!!!
