I was on a walk with the dog one early morning this week, it was such a beautiful morning, heavy dew sparkling on the grass, making the small cobwebs shine, trees showing through the mist in the back ground and I just thought ‘wow’ I so want to paint this. But I had no paints. I was thinking about it all day, so in the evening I searched out some old colouring pencils that were the boys as they were growing up, sharpened them up, ordered them in colours, and I drew this. What do you think? It’s no Da Vinci, I know!
So today I went out and have brought some acrylics, I don’t know what to do with them but I’m looking forward to having a play later. As I’m such a perfectionist I’m sure most of it going to end up in the bin out of frustration, but I just want to give it a go!
So if there is any of you out there that have any tips, mainly on mixing colours and layering then I’m all ears!
