I mixed the paints this time, just to lighten them. I was really pleased with it. Felt it still needed some finishing off, but had no more lead.
My mood was much better today, helped by lots of good wishes from friends, and a lovely phone call from my cousin. And there I was feeling very unloved yesterday! The friend who should have met me for coffee had a problem with her car, she'd also lost my landline number, and my mobile has died. She had sent me an email but I hadn't switched on the PC, so it was a case of confusion all round. But things happen for a reason, and I believe I was being told to reach out.
I finished most of the painting on the mandala, I brought it home to finish it off. I think it needs a bit more lead work on it. Did have a chat about the relief paste, the tutor said that they do vary in quality, and not to go for the cheap stuff. I'm sticking with the Cern or marabu. Still got my party to look forward to next week, and a newsletter to read, and lots of things to sign up to if I wish.
Thanks for stopping by to read my witterings, it is much appreciated.
