Had an idea for a painting. In my hubris, I took out the easel and paint set that Linda bought me a few years ago, and in even greater hubris, I took the one canvas I had and used oil paints.
It's called: Kayak. Two border stripes of dark brown, with black streaks. In the middle, a big stripe of bright blue paint with white splotches, and in the middle a single red spot.
And I botched it.
What the hell do I know about art?
A third of it looks nice, two/thirds of it looks crappy.
I had an image in my head, and I tried to do it, but I didn't have the technique. I'm going to let the oil dry for a week, and then try to paint over it. A little more planning would have been good, but like my writing I just wanted to get it done.
I had another image in my head a few months ago, called Tumbling Geometric Shapes. I need to buy some more supplies if I'm going to be doing this on a regular basis.
Anyway, this is purely for fun. Just playing.
