Live Mandala Painting: ‘Bangles’ Day 16

Book Bin Bookstore Window Project June 14 – July 5

[I’m 4 days behind in posting this]

Today I started the green sections.  Today I had a set-back learning experience with my progress.  The green paint I was using seemed like it was okay to use even if it was quite old;  I was wrong…terribly wrong.

At first the paint when on easy enough however it became glumpy (yes that an official artist word) and the more paint I put on, the more it would clump together or come off the canvas.  Word to the wise…throw out old paint even if it’s a high quality brand.

So what do you do?  What do I do?  That’s when I concede to the moment and pull out the tube of titanium white and paint over what I had spent an hour painting.   “you gotta know when to fold ’em”
