Day 83 & 84... didn\'t get posted.
Nope I didn\'t break the painting streak, 84 days and counting. But I did space off posting Day 83. But since Day 83 and 84 go together that\'s okay.
Day 83 was supposed to be one of those loose flowers that Angela Fehr is known for. I am fascinated by her paintings and watching her paint. But somehow that fascination just doesn\'t flow through into my paintings. My loose flower at one point looked like an alien angel, which actually cracked me up. Then it went to seriously hot mess that didn\'t look like anything. So I sprayed water on it and some plastic wrap and went to bed.
Good thing I remembered to take a photo, because last night I decided to try the negative painting techniques that Angela Fehr demonstrates in a lot of her videos. The strange abstract painting had some nice shapes in it so I thought this would be fun.
It was fun, lots of fun, butnow the painting looks nothing like the underlying shapes. In fact I\'m not really sure quite what happened here, but this painting amuses me to no end. 20170922_161909

As always, my computer and I are in battle. Big reason that I do very little online connecting. I\'m old-fashioned and just starting to get the hang of even holding a watercolor brush. Here\'s what I stayed up late and working on last night. Should I say this morning?

I\'m liking these two days of related sketches in my Hobonichi planner. While sitting at the lake last evening, the seagulls were busy enjoying the night and I was enjoying the show.

Birds flying and swooping high
\'It\'s mob action
I fly, you fly, we all fly
It\'s sky ballet\' IMG_6198
