Today has been a dull and dreary day for the Yarra Valley. Lots of fog in the morning and very cold all day. So I thought I would add a little bit of colour to the day with a few paintings and half a dozen beautiful king parrots in the back yard, possibly a bit hard to see!
The great thing about painting is you can change your mind and paint over something that just doesn’t want to work for you. Unlike printing where the mistake is there and you need to start again which is what happened to the piece I was working on recently for The Firestation Print Studio Cards. The background was done and I was going to use a selection of individual linos to make up the top layer. Got the first two done the ever so slightly dropped the lino and left a light imprint on the artwork, nothing I could do but start again. There is a happy ending though I have managed to make the next one a success!
