I had the meanest urge to paint...something. It's kind of a problem when you really want to explore and create with a medium, but have no inspiration as to what in the world to do with it. So, I did what I've done every other time I've been stuck in this challenge thus far, I asked my sister (she's awesome by the way). She suggested I just play with the paint. So I did. I played with the acrylic set I got. First I discovered that my "set" contained absolutely no shades of purple. That is really annoying. While yes I know, "blue and red make purple," purple is so much more complicated than that. There were however, three shades of brown (?) two greens, two blues, two yellows, one orange, one red, and black and white. I think I need a better set. I mostly played with flat brushes. They were the most fun to lay paint and blend with. Also, I'm clearly still obsessed with trees. I will be playing more tomorrow. And shopping for better acrylic sets.
