Today I moved on to the painting excercises. The first was this snowy tree. I used the masking fluid to protect the snowy mound, and some of the branches. I used four colours, grey, blue, brown and yellow ochre.
I really have fallen in love with this medium. I'm finding it easier to get results, and also to produce a painting I am happy with and one that looks like I want it to look!
Not so hot physically, my back is really giving me problems. I had to pull out of the photo walk today. At least that awful heat has gone, it was lovely yesterday, a bit cloudy, but the right temperature for me. Harvey is also much happier, he was really suffering with his fur coat. Though he's being a bit of a pain about his food, liking something one day and then not the next, so I mixed in his treats with his food, he had no choice then! He's clever, if I toss a treat to him he'll catch it in his paws, he'd make a good goalie.
More painting tomorrow, fingers crossed the paints come!
