Hello! We’ve just come back from our annual camping holiday to France and while waiting for work to roll in (and after doing shed loads of laundry!), I have made a painting to commemorate our lovely vacation.
You may remember this:
This is the painting of my favorite teapot from the Lynn Whipple course I did in March. I loved the background, but not the rest. I have had it sitting around these last few months waiting for my hubs to move a painting in the kitchen to hang it up. I am so glad he hadn’t done that! There are many layers on this cradled wood panel. Here is what it looks like now.
Regatta – Mixed Media on Cradled Wood Panel – 21×29.5cm
I used some of the techniques I learned in the Mixed Media Express 3 online course with Julie Prichard. I managed to save some parts I really like and you can also see some of the other marks underneath if you look closely. It wasn’t my intention to paint a Regatta, but that is how it turned out! Maybe my sub-conscious won out as I did have a plan to make a Regatta painting based on the boats we saw on Lac Annecy in France. I may even make some more as I enjoyed painting this so much.
Here are a couple of close ups:
If you want to see some photos of where we stayed this year, I put up some posts on my other blog, Dream Big – Pack Lite. I needed something to do as I didn’t have any paint with me! 🙂
Happy Painting People!
