Not quite back to normal.
4th January, posting on a Monday as days not back to normal, just yet.
Received as a Christmas present. 1st reaction. very nice picture but I don`t do kits. Smiled nicely, thanked profusely and secretly thought Charity Shop.
Sitting at night by the fire listening to an audio book (Bleak House by Charles Dickens)
Looked again at present. Unwrapped, thought it might be relaxing to have something mindless to sit with at night. Took me ages to tick off colours and match to sides of canvas. Thought I would make a start.
Addictive, just had to finish a skein.
My thank you note will be genuine.
Back to the day job
Looking at painting the squares as a whole, then cut up. Will see how this works. Visualize the squares being individual pieces but having a connection.
Pieces of maps glued randomly. Painted using a sponge.
Tissue paper glued down. Washed over with gesso. Sprayed with water before gesso dries.
Added Coastal lines from 3 location I have been visiting.
Good to get back to this piece of work again. Based on sand ripples and coast lines.
Still grey, windy, rainy Ugh.
May finish another skein.
Will be back posting on Sunday next week as festive season over.
Look in to view progress, if any and see how many skeins I have used
