The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now. –Chinese Proverb
I am having so much fun painting backgrounds.
And, if you’re a regular reader of this blog, you know I usually don’t get attached to my backgrounds. Usually it’s no problem for me to paint over them and add my whimsical characters.
But lately, I am just in love with these backgrounds and I don’t want to change a thing!
I just adore cutting out shapes and layering lokta papers with origami and tissue papers. Then I add some acrylic inks, spray inks, paint and water soluble oil pastels.
While I am loving to paint my characters on sketchbook paper and book pages, I am most loving to create my backgrounds on canvas panel or wood.
That in itself has sort of separated the two processes and left me with all of these backgrounds- as is.
For now, I’m just leaving them. They’ve definitely inspired my paintings in new ways. And, maybe later, they will lead me in a new direction.
What have you been loving to create most these days? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
As always, thank you so much for stopping by, for sharing and for commenting with such kindness!
