When I came back from Portugal after Flora Bowley's class I started another fairly big canvas.. (here's my paintings from this workshop). I dibbled and dabbled with different styles of putting on the paint - styles that Flora really encouraged us to use, to step out of our comfort zone and "get our paint on". It has been about 5 weeks since I returned and every day (pretty much) I dabble with this painting. It has transformed in front of me. What once looked like a Koala bear, sometimes a Rabbit, has now, I believe, become a silhouette of a lady. It's not quite there yet. But as I dabble every night at my easel, which is in my bedroom looking out onto our garden, it tempts me to paint, even for just 20 minutes, to add another layer, to see a different take on it.
