This weekend, I have to say that I succeeded, at least in getting started. The catalyst was a chance conversation with a conference organiser, who told me the story of an art teacher who got students to deface pristine books to break the blank paper syndrome. So that's what I did.
Here are a few pieces where I have used left over paint to create washes. It's certainly a way to start.
I am sure that my Grammar school art teacher who put me off for many years would still manage to find fault. But now, I'm not bothered. It's all for me, as a way to relax.
So, from a standing start, here are my first five efforts.
Enjoy (or not) ! ;-)
