painting


i worked on this painting {and lots of other things} this weekend. it started out as a fun 'loose-limbed' approach to the paint. not my usual thing, but i had fun experimenting and just letting the colours happen. i'm usually much more controlling over the composition, and often wish i wasn't!! usually i have a general idea of the composition with landscapes ~ which seems to work well with short blocks of time and getting ideas out. i'd love to have more time to play and allow things to develop a little more freely/intuitively!

hope your week is getting off to a good start :)

** the image is looking a little fuzzy in blogger. if you click on the image it'll take you to flickr, where it'll look clearer!!

Very nice effect. I like the "looseness" and the way the colors blend.

I like the soft pastel colours - it's kind of calming.

The lose approach is very nice. You should be very happy. I know about planning, it is hard not to sometimes.

This is really beautiful Belinda. Letting the paint run and do its thing and then those little red circles. Perfect!
