watching paint dry

Welcome to paint party Fridays
I've drawn and painted daily, which really has been a great way to learn.

sometimes I learn from a video, such as the feather with it's thousand little brush strokes
sometimes from prompt, like InkTober encouraging sketch with pen. Permanent, momentary.
gestures that catch my eye
or feelings I have
I continue to paint with the big brush, and big bold color. No plan, just color onto paper, then look at it and sketch over it with staedtler fineliners and pigma pens.
little details layering the paper
seeing what shows up.
I sit the day's painting on my desk and notice it as a whole, as I walk by thru the day.
Sometimes I'm amazed at how much I like them, and I'm pretty self critical.Many art forms interest me, but painting is providing an outlet I didn't anticipate.

Pink Saturday!
