So instead I will show you the process of this particular playdate with the paint.
An old painting on board, flipped upside down. Boldly splat some blue paint across it and spread it around. Want some orange? Sure. Some magenta? Why not? Turn the board again? Ok. Draw an odd creature? Sure thing. Scrape through the paint with a chopstick - because it is fun to excavate texture and color. Let the wood grain be itself, because it is boldly persistent. Add softness with gesso-blended colors. Hello, Mudge!
Dear reader! You've whiled away another year with me on the blog...and that makes FIVE since its inception! I am so grateful for your time, your comments, your encouragement and for the lovely links to all the things that are inspiring YOUR playdates in the world. Shall we do it again next year? Yahooooooooooooo!
