Impromptu=the only kind of way I do art. I’m the type of person who won’t do anything artsy for a month (or two or three) and then one evening I’ll have an idea and want to do it, so I will. The other evening my spur-of-the-moment idea was a finger painting.
I love (LOVE) the Impressionist style. I always have. Monet is my absolute favorite. A few years ago my family was able to visit his home and gardens in Giverny, France.
One thing that annoys me about my own style of artistic-ness (annoys mildly, not dreadfully) is that when I paint I tend to be very particular, keep my edges crisp and tidy, and generally make non-messy paintings. And I LOVE messy, sloppy paintings. Paint swirled around and bleeding into other colors when painting with watercolors, or, like Monet, have paint blobs and lines that create a picture but keep a very loose style. Here’s a few other kinds of pictures I enjoy (click photos to be transported to Etsy World where you can buy them!)
So, on to my project.
I wanted to paint something but have it be very loose. So, I used one finger to paint it. Lots of blobs and smears and smooshiness.
My poor messy palette by the end! (I ran out of room towards the end and so I reused space rather than clean it off and start again.)
