playing with paint

This week I did a bit of everything, but don't have much to show for it. I finished small details on my painting and gave it a few coats of varnish, I made some ACEO's and I have been playing with my 2 new canvases, putting layer upon layer of bright colours.

Here are the ACEO's:


 And the 2 canvases:


The first one is for an intuitive painting, but it's so long ago I made one that I really have to practice again to see figures. At the moment I don't see anything, so I might have to make quite a few more layers. The second one is for a "negative" painting like the one I finished last week. I love working on more than one painting at the same time. When I'm stuck with one I can just continue with the other one.

And, in case you don't know it yet, next week one of my favorite challenges will start: The Summer of Color! I have been participating for the last three years and I love it. It makes me use colours that I normally wouldn't use and sometimes it really surprises me how I like certain colourcombinations. If you want to join in the fun, here's the link to Kristin's blog. Hope to see you there!

That's it for this week. I'm linking this to Paint Party Friday (bloghop for all kinds of art that was created this week) and to Art It Friday - Show your face (bloghop for any kind of face that you made this week). Lots of eye-candy at both places!

I'll finish with my funny of the week ;-)

lol :-D

Thanks for visiting here! I love reading your comments and visiting your blogs too. Wishing  you a wonderful day and a great weekend with lots of favorite things to do! ♥ ♥ ♥
