|Beyond the Clearing|
Painting size 10"x 8"
I have practised this with two pieces. The first I have entered as my monthly challenge piece for Virtual Paintout which the location for November is New Brunswick in Canada. I did a fair bit of wandering around and found some parts not dissimilar to my part of the world here. There was a lot of tree lined highways and roads and I settled on using trees to improve my negative painting skills. It is not as easy as it looks and you really have to get your mind in focus to get a reasonable result.
This is not a painting as such but a study piece and I feel I learnt lots today.
The second piece is a large size 15"x 22.5" and was a good exericse in negative painting. I used a painting I started last week where I splashed around colour and applied some clingfilm and then never got back to it. Today I looked at the result and was going to toss it in the bin as I was not entirely happy with it but then I thought well you need the practise try something. I had these three funny purple blue sections where I applied the clingfilm and I thought why not turtles! I have deliberately used limited colours and relied on negatively painting around the shapes and created the fish the same way. I think it is a bit funky and a fun piece

I have this week done little other painting but have spent quite some hours setting up a website and you can find the link to it on the pages tab at the top of this page or here
