Woohoo, I’m Finally Finished! (The Winter Sun and Bathing in a River of Poison)

paint1This last week or so, I’ve not been posting at my usual rate. However, this has been for a very nice and creative reason. The reason being, I’ve been messing around with paint in my free time and I truly mean messing.

Last time I painted, was as a child. As an adult, painting is actually kind of intimidating and sharing what I’ve painted, is even more nerve-wracking. These are my first attempts at painting. I hope you enjoy. If anything, I’ll up lift your mood with my attempts at painting.

After my messing with the watercolours, I had to be a bit more serious with the Acrylic paint and actually set of to paint something. Which was kind of hard, when all I wanted to do was throw the paint at the page and see what happens.

The pretty purple colour I used in the first layer.

The Acrylic paint wasn’t as straight forward as the watercolours and had to be done in layers. So, it took a hell of a longer to complete and because of this, I thought it might be nice to share each stage of the process, instead of just posting the finished piece.

I like to give everything a name, so I’ve named this painting, Bathing in a River of Poison.

Hope you enjoyed this post. I had loads of fun messing with paints, but to be honest I still prefer pencil drawing a lot more.
