I’m not sure how to feel about the fact that May is almost over, but here we are. This is one of my favourite times of the year, when I wish I had more time on my hands whilst drowning in things to do. Although this months theme was a wonderfully broad one, I struggled to sit down in peace and make something. I started painting some porcelain but wanted to chuck it out 10 minutes in. With the last days of uni and all that it entails hanging over me, I decided to go for something simple, useful and above all therapeutic.
I don’t have a room or office of my own, but instead the rest of the flat as the second bedroom is where my better half sits and works. Most often the door is open, but at times one of us will want to have it closed, which leaves a big old boring piece of wall exposed, filled with old nail holes to boot. I wanted something to pick up the blue shades dotted around the house, so with speckled minty easter eggs and turquoise waters I set to work.
The wall it hangs on is away from any of the windows, which makes it difficult to get a decent picture, but here it is!
I used a mixture of watercolours and tempera, and acrylic for the spattering. There’s something very relaxing about splashing paint around, specially in a workshop where you don’t need to be too worried about your surroundings.
Bring on June!
