24 jun, and couldn’t resist doing “just one quick painting” …..

And ended up with five. mixed too much paint, can’t bear waste so…here’s number one and again after about 1/2 hour. Be interesting to see how much its changed today. I really tried hard to keep level this time so it didn’t run off as the last ones did.

Next one I remembered to swirl!! There’s more black in this mix and lots more cells appeared after waiting half hour or so.

I kept it simple – I thought – with just the R&L black and white, plus schminke silver and cerulean. I mixed with Floetrol and touch of alchohol, intending to spray cups first…but forgot. As usual. So for the first one I sprayed in the dirty cup, and of course intended to swirl the mix but forgot that too. I do have terrible memory issues, so have lists and reminders everywhere. I should do a step by step reminder for these 😉 except it varies each time.
Those two were 10 x 8 – still had mix left so did 3 3×3 inch ones, first two I like, but last one was awful, just a murky grey mix so I swirled whatever I could scrape from colour cups and its better. still will be scrap one I thjink but as two of these were over old scrap ones I don’t worry about that. easy to reuse canvas.

If it brightens up I’ll go out to shed and see how they’ve dried, see if my leveling helps. I was thinking that I seem to get more and better cells when i use more colours but then the first two 3×3 inch ones had loads. why didn’t the bigger ones I wonder?

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.

  1. These look really magical and somewhat scientific to me. Like like creatures growing in a dish somewhere.
    I like the really contrasting colours too.
