So chose the ATC size,never having painted on this scale before,I really enjoyed it ! although saying that I have done a few this year when I was on holiday in Portugal,just packed my travel paintbox and small brushes and some bits of w/color paper,didnt take up much room and boy was I glad I did ! the evenings were so boring lol.
I look around my craft room and think,what on earth have I got all this stuff for when really all i need is a box of paints and i,m happy !!
Trouble with me is ,these ideas keep popping into my head,I must alter that or WOW thats a lovely image,i can do a lot with that.........I get inspired quite easy these days,it could be retirement,boredom,I dont know but I can say I enjoy my life,just to potter about doing what comes naturally haha.......
Dont get out so much these days either,not to just walk the countryside and paint whatever took my fancy,Like i used to do, life changes ,one door closes and another opens as they say...so most things I do now are from memory.
The other thing that helps is teaching others to paint,just one day a week, I think thats what did it for me this week,when watching them painting,I have this bad habit of grabbing the brush and doing it lol, always getting my hand slapped ! This week the lady was painting poppies,I was itching to do it haha.....so hey presto I got it out my system today !! not from real life though,just trying to capture from memory.
