The Rooftops of Thaxted

I am such a messy painter. I look at other Artists paint pallets and the paint is set out in meticulous order, in decent little blobs, ready to neatly mix, leaving blank areas to mix in! I will never learn, my paint pallet always looks dia from the beginning, and gradually gets so messy, that I use sheets and sheets of this clever wax paper.

So today, I have decided to make life a lot easier for myself, and not paint each building individually, as I normally would. Instead I have painted all the roof tops, and some chimneys all in one fell swoop! Now I know why! THIS HAS SAVED ME HOURS/DAYS/WEEKS of work. Though it is not pleasing to my eye, to see my work without the finer details (which is my absolute favourite part), I think I can live with this, for a while.

Why I haven't grasped this notion before, I will never know. You live and learn I am told....

Normally, I do my road last and sky second from last - how stupid I have been! This time, sky first, then light fluffy clouds, then road, then roof tops ..... I'm on a roll here, I tell you!

Must say, I cant wait to recommence more 'Bubblemania' ... sold it you know! The one that got away... the original, one of a kind ... YES I let it go ... and ..... I must confess, 'it felt great' . To see my buyer so pleased and complimentary, was worth every metallic detail! I was under the illusion that I would miss my Bubblemania (which I confess I do a smidge), and when it came to it, not want to sell it. BUT I DID IT!

Thanks for reading folks and have a good eve, over and out from me xxx

The pines have taken an unexpected turn, and gone abstract! The pallette knives have been in the skies, and the modeling clay has raised its game. Why not! Why be dull! Texture is good to touch! Abst
