In this summer to-do list I mentioned starting new oil paintings and starting acrylic painting.
Well, two goals accomplished. I did my first palette knife paining with a makeshift palette knife thingy I made by flattening a spoon, ’cause I’m crafty like that. Anyway, it’s been a week of firsts. It was also my first painting of poppies! 🙂 Now, we don’t have poppies here in India (and if we do – definitely not in my region) so I’m not too familiar with them. But. I tried.
It’s still incomplete. Since the layer is so thick, it needs an abundance of drying time! Oil paint. Sigh.
Sitting on my easel, haha. ^_^ I know, they look naught like poppies, but hey! I’ve got plenty of time to finish them. Might improve, if patient.
Currently I don’t have a picture of my first acrylic painting done with proper palette knives. It requires some tweaking, then will be up on here. It’s nothing grand, though. Just a 20x25cm thing.
The list also included some photography. The pictures I clicked recently aren’t of photography caliber, but I guess they’ll count.
Wiry problems. That’s an electrician with a ladder, leaning against an electric pole with tangled wires. ‘Cause, well, summer is a synonym of power cuts and similar problems, here.
Kids playing outside. *wipes happy tears*
I’m also kind of thinking of making a movie thingy of sorts.
Looks like there won’t be much time to read books… Maybe I’ll just have to squeeze sleep, reading, and food into whatever crevices my schedule has left.
