Stepping into unexplored territory-for me.
I spoke about beginning oil painting classes a couple of weeks ago and how uncomfortable I was with getting that first touch of paint on the canvas.
Well I started and left my canvas at the studio so I would not be tempted to mess it up.
I was working from a picture that had directions and colors to use in the painting.
The green in the center are the beginnings of a tree and a little path up to the tree.
I could not stand the waiting, so I tried to do the painting again from memory since I had the paint that wasn't used to go by.
Also I had a picture of my beginning painting.
She had suggested we get disposable palettes so if there is paint not used you can just cover it with another page and take it home and continue to use it up.
Here is what I did today.
Then I played with it on Picnik and it has helped me to play around with how I might finish my painting.
The things one can do with Picnik are unending.
It is just fun to sit and play with it.
You know what they say about old age.
