Obsession uses my all time favourite colours. Aptly named, I have an obsession with the colour purple. I like to have some drama in my paintings, the more contrast and texture the better.
Starting off with some basic colours and soft blends. I love to blend the paint together on my canvas, mixing the different colours by adding different amounts of each colour.
Adding more depth of colour and changing shapes where I think I need to. Nearly finished, I have to just add some more texture with the palette knife and I’m all done! I’m using packing tape to hold my canvas sheet to my board. It’s a really handy tool as it will give me a lovely little border around the edge of my sheet.
If you fancy popping over to see my next piece in progress, I have progress pictures available on my Facebook and Instagram accounts.
If you’re ready to purchase one of my paintings please pop over to my Etsy store.
Today I will be placing my painting of Solitude in the spot light. Love this painting. I love the ‘quietness’ of it. The thought of being in a cabin somewhere remote under a beautiful night sky all alone makes me feel calm and relaxed.
What would you do if you had the chance to get away? I’d be reading, hiking and just generally letting my mind wander. Of course I’d have my camera and my art journal with me. I wouldn’t want to miss anything inspiration that I would find.
