Are you sick of the endless photos of works in progress yet? No? Fabulous. Remember my first half hour painting from Wyanne’s Paint Free class? Busy, to say the least.

The next step was to write two letters, paint over them, cut them up and stick them onto the half hour painting, to make it into a new painting. I won’t give more details than that as it seems unfair to Wyanne.

Here is an appalling photo of my two letters covered in paint. Some people in the class did beautiful paintings over their letters. I did not.

Which is just as well as I probably wouldn’t have wanted to cut them up. What I did do though was cut them up WAY TOO SMALL. I am not known for my patience with fiddly things, and although I consider learning patience one of my life lessons, I really did not feel duty bound to apply it here.

I did start sticking the bits down, as you can see in the bottom left corner! Ugh. It drove me mad(der) quite quickly. And since I’m an adult and don’t have to fear detention if I don’t do as I’m told in class, I decided to go off on a bit of a tangent.

I tell you, you can’t go wrong with a bit of dry brushing and white paint. I saved all the circles and the fishy shape and consigned the rest to faded grandeur. 🙂

More to come on this.
