Hearts and Wings

Like me, do you ever get half-way through a project and get stuck?  Then put it to one side waiting for inspiration ....?  Well, I do this quite often and sometimes it's not because I'm stuck what to do next but that I run out of time and have to come back to it.  Then, when I do, I've lost that creative spark with it.  Well this canvas is one of those times ... unfortunately I don't have any 'before' pictures, but the beauty of working with acrylic paint is that you can paint over anything you don't like.  So, adopting some layering techniques, I did exactly that .... I hope you like it ....

Hearts & Wings

Close-up of different layers and shading

I added collage to cover up parts I really didn't like

Add some interest around the edge ...

I'm so pleased with how it turned out.  I placed it at the Shenley Tea Rooms and it sold within the week!  Amazing!  I now know what to do with all my other half-done paintings now ... :)

Until next time ... happy painting !
