An old family napkin
marked with stitch
A not so old painter's drop cloth
marked in play
Even when painting I can't get away from
soft greys and browns
and of course
marks that could be stitches
Not so many layers of colours here
but what I learnt
was that I prefer the marks to be a lighter value
rather than darker
An old acrylic painting completely covered
then marks were made by
scraping into the top layer of oils.
I'm trying to teach myself to paint with oils
Exploring mark making with oils
Most of the time I end up with mud!
I am still a stitcher!
