I love to paint as a hobby and some of my little works are featured in my Etsy shop. Escaping into the paint box is just as magical as walking into the wardrobe closet and ending up in Narnia. It's like going on a road trip with no road map or any particular destination in mind. Here's a brief travelogue of one recent journey.
I laid out the "bones".
I added some color.
I put in the background.
Then added accents and highlights.
I went around the world and back and brought back a souvenir, all with out leaving my stance at my easel. I saved a lot of money on gas, but still had to wash out my brushes. It was so much fun!
