When you work in a small space (ie the top of the cooker) it probably doesn't need a brain surgeon to say that deciding to switch from painting pale sandy backgrounds to black, isn't the most sensible of ideas. But while one canvas was drying I spotted some little wooden plaques with moon photos stuck on.... that i was going back to finish off 'later' more than a little while ago!
Suddenly it feels so much better....A few layers later & this is where I'm at.... except I now want to reverse it to have more 'beach' & less 'sea'... & tone down the colour a touch so it won't fight with the lettering... why it took me so long to get to this point, I really don't know, but sometimes that's the way things go (or don't!).
And no... I didn't splash any black.... but i did get a bit of white on a couple of moon pics. My plan is to collage some lettering on to them anyway, so I'll sort them out "later"....
