Only yesterday I posted the first in this little series about painting with numbers. I thought it would take me a bit longer to finish. But I did it. Finished last night (or should I say this morning) at 1am
It has been a marathon effort to finish this challenging bit of painting. Admittedly himself did provide a bit of impetus. Last night he would not let me go to bed as he was in the middle of watching a scary movie. Which he could not watch without my comforting presence. So I sat with my painting while he was absorbed in being scared.
The filling in of those hundreds of microscopic dots was so tedious. It required constant washing of the brush to change colours. And those damn little pots are incredibly hard to open as well.
In the end I unleashed my inner creative artiste and began to blend my own colours. Lots of pots open. A dab of this mixed with a dab of that. And splashed on to this, that and the other spot. Seemed to work.
I even managed to salvage the hidden face on the vase. I had sort of lost it with splashes of paint going where they did not belong. But – I re-invented it! All by my myself.
Now for the unveiling! Pretty happy with it.
Dare to push the boundaries
