20 x 22 oil on cardboard
only if I push will I get over the fear barrier
only by painting will I learn
only by painting will I experiment and play

I decided the first week to try to go to the basics.... and what better way then using monochromatic tones. This first painting 20 x 22 cm done on card board with one coating of gesso. Worked with oils and palette knife.... one thing I noticed on the gesso was that my strokes weren't going on as smoothly as I wished... so I may put on a tone of diluted paint next painting. Grays where my own mix... french -ultramarine + raw umber.
a few of my own rules "... not EVERY painting has to be a masterpiece!!!!" "no matter what POST....."
" don't look at other posts before you post"
I was completely not satisfied with this painting...so today scraped and wiped most of it off... hope to repaint tomorrow morning with the pot in morning light from my window....
