I decided to label this Week #4 because I’m now adding more than 1 or 2 layers each time so am up to something like 7 or 8 layers. And this is still part of the 4th week of class.
This one was fun because I bought some paint in a color I love, turquoise. Seems like this color is super popular right now, which is why I hesitated to use it. But I’ve always loved it, especially turquoise the stone, which could partly be because my grandparents used to bring me jewelry from Arizona.
Anyway, I really like seeing the layers peek through now, there’s some depth forming.
This one still hasn’t clicked with the colors for me even though I do like the light blue and yellow, with a touch of orange and red. I struggled with what and how much to cover and how to work with what works, as Flora has said several times.
It’s hard to see in this pic but I also did a little splatter paint a la Jackson Pollock. Doing the splattering is so fun I actually find myself giggling. I wonder if Pollock ever got in fits and giggles while he was working.
