After I finished practicing yesterday I decided to have some fun, I took the mud that was left on my pallet and made this up as I went along. I know it, not great but it was so much fun I had to show it.

have a great day.
if you are reluctant to start a painting, ask yourself: What would I do if I didn't have to worry about the way it looked?

Isn't this just the most fascinating medium? I mean, where else could you produce something so interesting and thought provoking from something so yucky (mud in your pallette)???

Thanks CharM, my wife asked me if it was a self portrait. I don't think so but who knows, it could be from somewhere deep inside.:evil:

I really, really like this....The more you observe, the more it seems to come at you -3d like- jumping outta the page. He looks simple and puzzled/troubled as if he is wondering if you have noticed him or not!
It's brilliant!

Yar: I love this piece. very cool and very intriging . You have a wonderful imagination. I would never have thought of doing something like this in a million years. I must let my free spirit guide me if I can figure out how to let her free.

Thanks for the inspiration.

This very good indeed...when using the 'mud' left on a pallete there is always a chance to make a muddy bloody mess but this is skillfully done and you have kept it fresh looking with white paper showing here and there. Can image this hanging on a wall in modern minimalistic type room

A yearly prize usually won by the avant-garde Brit Art modernists the winning exhibits are displayed at the Tate.

Philip Jamison an American artist used the paper that his students tested their colours on to produce pictures. He also used his old failed paintings washed into a complete mess picked out shapes and reworked the painting with gouache and pastel with stunning results (beautiful still lifes mostly floral).
