Another painting from a black-and-white photo found online. Hats make such wonderful props.
In this one, as I painted, I tried to concentrate on connecting the shapes, and on letting the paint flow.
I generally, especially when I'm painting just to get something done, to keep my hand in when I have too many other things to do, like now, work small. Smaller paintings are easier to complete--and I like to complete things (I can never decide if it's a virtue or a vice).
But it finally occurred to me while painting this that if you want to let the paint flow and see what it does, you should perhaps use a larger piece of paper to get the best effect, or more of the best effect.
Thanks for all the comments on yesterday's post; there was such a variety of opinion and they all gave me something to think about.
I should note here--it's part of my disorganization--that I have different "names" and profile pictures on different sites, which can be confusing ... even to me: I routinely forget passwords and open new accounts. Maybe next time I'm snowed in I'll work on having only one online presence, so as not to confuse people when I contact them on other sites. (Sorry, Carol!)
