WIP Painting - PEC Peinture

It had been so long since I'd done an actual painting that I was a bit intimidated by the blank canvas. So I started by collaging pieces of paper. I applied some Light Modeling Paste (gel medium) and let it dry for a few hours. Then, a coat of clear gesso, a coat of Glazing Medium with orange acrylic paint and, finally, I sprayed some pink shimmer mist that I let drip down the canvas. I don't know where this is going from here but I did have fun playing this way.

Il y avait un bout de temps que je n'avais peint alors j'étais un peu intimidée par le canvas nu. Alors j'ai commencé par collager des morceaux de papier. J'ai appliqué un peu de Mortier de Structure Souple (médium gel) que j'ai laissé sécher quelques heures. Puis, une couche de gesso transparent, une couche de  Médium pour Glacis avec de l'acrylique orange et, finalement, j'ai vaporiser du shimmer mist rose que j'ai laissé dégouliner le long du canvas. Je ne sais pas quelle direction je prendrais avec ceci mais j'ai eu du plaisir à jouer de cette façon.

Sometimes that's the best thing to do....just play and let your painting go where it wants to go. I love the orange.

One of the classes I took recently, we were just supposed to paint for 30 minutes without thinking or stopping. Just put paint on the surface and let it happen. I was surprised and happy with the results.

Isn't it funny how we can be intimidated by something?

Wow, lots of layers already. I can't wait to see where this one goes. It is fun just playing sometimes with no end in mind.
