The witch is done!
I went back over my blog because I couldn't remember the last actual painting I did....it was in June! Wow, I went that long without painting my whimsical girls! I need to make sure that doesn't happen again.
The background gave me trouble when I started, but after a while, it seemed to flow. So much for keeping it simple, I started adding layers for some interest. The secret is to just paint, and let it go where it wants to, and mostly, don't stress about it. There is no right or wrong way to do art, and even if you make mistakes, you simply learn from them, and apply what you have learned the next time.
I'm looking forward to my next painting now, maybe I can get into some kind of groove, and not go another 3 months!
The last couple of days we have had some insane weather. Yesterday they were calling for a 'weather bomb', which I have never heard of. For us we had the craziest winds and they've lasted so far for 2 days.
According to the news it hit lots of areas hard, especially in the US.
Were any of you affected? I'm surprised at the intensity, and how much area it has covered. Makes me think that we are in for a hell of a winter.
thanks for reading!
