Some More Blue

On Tuesday, my health had improved enough to go to the Evening Studio in the town, so I could continue working at the painting I started there. First of all, I added some of the blue glimmer mist from The Tattered Angels Paint System I received a week ago.

Then, I continued listening to it and my intuition as to what else needs to be added. When we left, it looked like this, and I have the feeling it's not far from being finished.

Now, I have to start thinking about a new surface to start a new painting on over there :)

Do you remember the blue vortex inspired by a video with Mooji from the same week? Last week, I've continued to work at it as well, as it felt too "blue" and too shallow for my liking. At some point, it looked almost completely black.

This is, how it looks now. I like it much more, but I definitely don't like the lines caused by the frame beneath the thin canvas, so I'm preparing new canvases for future paintings covering them completely with snippets of paper, some - even with more than one layer. And I think, I will paint over the collage with some dark color(s) as well.

I like the leaves a lot Rita. It seems that the blue you added comes through as faint lines. Sometimes the computer does not show the colors well. Glad you have a chance to join others at the workshop. Does your son do art too?? Would like to see some of his if he wants to share.

The layers are fantastic! I love your use of blue, it's such a wonderful color... Sometimes if I get a ridge in the canvas or a bump, I mist it a little bit in the back with water and it tightens up.

Really beautiful. I love intuitive paintings. They always have so much depth to them.
