After all the careful brush strokes I needed something different today so I grabbed the palette knife and started carving out points of light and spreading out colourful foliage. The palette knife is also a great way to get cool textures and coverage over the whole surface fast and I needed that speed. After work I collapsed and half slept for about 2 hours, losing a bunch of painting time to fatigue. But such is life with fibromyalgia, I’ve had a persistent cough virus for a while and the combo fibro + virus is making me far more tired than usual. But I know how to work fast. And it was such fun! I really enjoy the messy lines, all the smudgy colours combining into something that looks alive.
“City Life”, acrylics on paper, about A4-sized.
This painting doubled as my entry for this week’s #colour_collective submission on Twitter. The colour theme this week was a cool green colour.
