Leftovers

Well, I have finally gotten out the paints again. I am making a small painting for the Whedonverse swap I am in over on Craftster. I can't show it yet because I don't want to possibly spoil it for my partner.

So instead, I thought I would share my Leftovers canvas. Someday it may be an actual completed piece, it has happened before. I have never been able to just dump the excess paints on my palette. And since I use acrylics, I can just store them like you can with oils, which take oodles longer to dry. So what do I do? I grab a canvas & brush on all the leftovers, without purpose. I keep adding until I like the look or it inspires a new focused direction...or it just ends up being nothing. That is the fun of it...you just never know.

This is where it stands after 3 leftover sessions:




Okay...here's a teaser pic of the swap painting...
just in case my partner peeks, it''l give her something to ponder upon...

you're very brave to take a medium not usually used, and just go with it! I'm excited to see the finished project too!
