30 Days of Creativity: Day 2 – painting seaweed

30 days of creativity

I don’t have any finished art to show today, but I did do quite a bit of work on my mermaid painting. So much, in fact, that I’m hoping with a bit of luck to get it finished tomorrow. So I don’t want to post a WIP photo here today. I’ll leave the big reveal to Sunday Sketches tomorrow, the challenge where I originally started this project.

The weather was fabulous today, especially since it was the second day of winter here in South Oz. I sat out on the back verandah and painted merrily without freezing to death.

All that is left to be painted is a coat or two on the water, maybe a sprinkle of glitter, some gems and a couple of final finishing coats to the whole piece with maybe a varnish on top. Then some drying time and it can be put up on the wall in my daughter’s bedroom.

Here is some vague proof that I spent several hours on my creativity today – a photo of my palette. Better piccies tomorrow!

Best wishes,

  1. I actually love the photo of your palette. The colours are so vibrant and make my fingers itch to get my paints out again.
