Messing about with left over paint


Good use of paint Paul ☺️

Like the dust bath effect Dixie- works well!

It’s lovely Paul, delicate muted washes of watercolour!

Stephen, Tessa and Alan thank you for you kind comments. Sometimes it comes together when your not expecting anything, probably because I was so relaxed about it.

The elephants! Wow Paul! So it's not only boating you're good at!

Thanks Art , I try most thing at some point.

Lovely soft effect, Paul.

Thank you Jenny I appreciate your comment.

Nice effects Paul.

Good messing!

Thank you Denise and Heather I appreciate your comments. It was quite fun to do and turned out better than I thought it would, mind you I had no preconceived ideas of what it would look like.

Happy Elephants .

Jolly elephants kicking up a storm, good one Paul.

Very nice, like the effect!

Spencer and Romila thank you rot your kind comments.

Sometimes you just have to play with what’s left on your pallet 👏👏 looks good

Thank you Alan I always try to do something with the leftover stuff and use the back of a old painting sometimes.

Hang on Studio Wall

A4 watercolour using up paint from the pallet , about 10 - 15 minutes. Elephant’s having a family dust bath , done just for fun , I wasn’t sure what I would paint when I started as I had seen a couple of photo’s earlier in the day of the elephant I decided to do my interpretation.
