Lazy Saturday Afternoon
Madly inspired by the works of V on Etsy I finally painted my first proper abstract! I used a picture I took on a Saturday afternoon when me and C decided to spend the day in Stephen's Green. To my horror, so did everyone in Dublin. C switched off with a book in the shade and I took my camera and, in an attempt to ignore all the sun and all the people, I took pictures of nearly every single flower/pigeon in the park.
I really enjoyed painting this one! I feel like painting a series of abstracts for the next couple of weeks. It will create a good balance with the series of charcoals I planned for next week (after loads of convincing and subtle diplomacy I managed to persuade C to pose for me).
Anyway, please feel free to comment!
