So having just watched Michael J. Lewis you tube talk (in the last post), I am going to paint (now that I have my moral story in place behind my plastic coat), for the pure pleasure of placing layer upon layer of colour and shape and form and movement of paint. To see where my thinking goes while I am enjoying the physical pleasure of moving the paint around. It l.ooks frightening at the moment, but I will see if I can bring it around. Only problem is, I painted this layer on two days ago and it is still wet. This is going to test my patience. I have not used oil paint before except for when I was in primary school and won my first and only art prize of a face painted on paper from a set of oil paints my Aunty and Uncle gave me for Christmas. I still have it somewhere. I am going to go and find it.
