30 Days of Unfurling: Day 7 - Watch a Painting Unfurl

Today was a non-painting day. Usually on Thursdays, I head into my studio to paint big but today I went with my son on an excursion to the local school's library. That was only in the afternoon though, in the morning I spent time faffing around and adding more photos into yesterday's blog post. Hmm, I seem to be on the back foot with my blogging challenge already, argh!

So to keep today's post quick and easy for me, I thought I'd share a sped up video from a recent studio session. Recently I've been experimenting with laying down a quick watercolour landscape scene and then coming over the top with acrylic paint and loads of patterns and details. Sometimes I leave quite a bit of the original watercolour showing through and sometimes, like in this one, I get a wee bit carried away and just keep adding more and more and more, but hey that's all part of the fun! Hope you enjoy the little glimpse into the process Xx

Here's a close up of all those delicious marks and patterns. Makes me want to get my paints out. I'm definitely painting tomorrow!
