In every blog post I’m doing something completely different! I’m kind of freaking myself out at this experimentation-phase-gone-wild. It’s fun, but it’s not moving me forward very much creatively!
This latest idea happened on Friday morning. By the evening I’d bought a couple of canoe paddles at Canadian Tire and had done this little watercolour painting.
By Saturday I was sanding and priming and researching and trying to figure out how to do this. The actual painting came next, and I discovered that acrylic paint works well, but is just transparent enough that it takes two coats, which takes too long! I haven’t figured out how to solve that problem but have several ideas on how to hang these for display.
Yesterday I added the design details on the handle. Today is varnishing day. And tomorrow?
