that first fine careless foxglove

Here's another sequence of snaps showing the development of a painting. It starts off with a pub sign, not that you can tell just yet...

Then there's a long period of splashing paint on and hoping for the best, and it takes for ever and I wonder if it's ever going to work.


And then it reaches a stage where I start to think it might work out OK, so  I don't burn it or stamp on it.
And then I think "OK, that's enough" because otherwise it'll never ever be finished. And I scan it, in three strips, and join them together in Paintshop Pro




And finally I layer it up and multply it, to create a greater depth of colour, like this.

 
And that's that!
