Painting experiments – Caught

Caught, acrylic, watercolour pencil and gel pen, approx. 265 x 195 mm.

Here you go. My attempt to create a painting from this. I love bits of it, other bits, not so much, but hey, it’s only an experiment 😀

So Christie, you scored 😀 It was a fish I had in mind. It would be interesting to see if it was the same fish 😀

(dashing off back to all consuming motherhood – I painted this in the last hour or so while the kids were asleep, bit of a rush job)

    These paintings are really inspiring and I am not even a painter. You keep me coming back to see what you've come up with. I think you're really on to something here with these experiments.
