Already three weeks ago, I posted a quote I really really liked (here!). I liked it so much I decided to paint it, so I can hang it on the wall!
I started by drawing with a pencil on a canvas. Then, to make sure my hand and arm wouldn’t “hang” in the wet paint, I needed to start from top to bottom and left to right. I used a toothpick to paint the words, small branches and birds. It’s weird how I painted kind of small meaningless marks, but it still looked like little birds! For the pink edges I put paint on a card and slid with it along the edges of the canvas, from the outside to the middle.
I really like the result, but sometimes I regret that my paintings are a copy of drawings I discovered somewhere. However, even though inside my head there’s a whole other world, I just can’t find the inspiration needed to make a painting which is entirely my own…
I’d like to know what you think about it!
Lots of love,
