I took the time to do two paintings today. One painting is another version of a forest scene I’d done a little while back because I’m going to give one of them to my Baha’i friends for their upcoming holiday. I actually like the newer painting a bit better and I know that they love the original one so I think that should work quite well for me! Not sure yet though but I’ve got until the end of the week to decide anyway. The other painting I did is a watercolour of a butterfly. It turned out quite well too. I wasn’t trying to get a perfect photo quality butterfly but rather more the butterfly essence in the general shape of a butterfly. I’m happy with what I got from it. I think I’m going to do the same thing with a dragonfly. .
So today is a creative day for me. I plan on doing a bit more reading today and maybe do a bit of cleaning but for the most part I’m trying to take advantage of some quality alone time. I’d also like to try a few paintings where I use only one colour in varying shades of light to dark. I need to find something I’d like to paint first though.
