Wednesday was a very cool and wet day here, and only cleared up a little
in the evening. I still went for my two walks, well armed with raincoat and wellies, and although I didn't manage as much as usual, I still got in 12000 steps altogether, so it wasn't bad for the squelchy, wet conditions.
This is another of my spray, drip and run paintings. The BG was painted with blues and grey left over from other projects, and then I went to work dripping and spraying. I dripped on some metal patinas in rust, green and orange, and sprayed them with diluted home-made sprays to get the colours moving. I repeated the procedure till I liked what I had, and added some fairy dust to the last spray. Then I outlined the drips using different gel-pens, and outlined some of the strange forms with a white pen. It looks to me like figures hovering above the bare tree trunks in the forest - perhaps the tree sprites? I added some of my embossed and glittered natural leaves, and some plants and berries. I drew and painted some fungi and grass along the bottom edge. The last additions were the fairy and the little elf.
I am linking to Art Journal Journey, Deep in the forest; Simon Monday Challenge, falling in love with - Autumn; Paint Party Friday, hosted by Eva and Kristin, Soartful Challenge, leaves and Moo Mania and more, Bright and cheerful.
I love the patterns in this burnt log, which was on one of the many fire-places along the Rhine
The rain filled the little stream leading to the Rhine and made the water spray and splash:
This chappy was disappointed because I had nothing for him today:
The corn was standing in water:
The paths were full of puddles:
But even puddles have a beauty of their own:
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
