After all – in June I only manage to paint one or two little giraffes.
Yes, I struggle with this assignment “Paint the Giraffe!” Really. I wanted to paint big. But. My apartment is toooo small. I spend some days thinking of painting the street or painting my fence. But before I was ready with thinking we got a lot of bad weather. Then I took some wood, painted it with gesso, connected the three tray to one “canvas”, covered this canvas with blobs and pledges…. But. Ups. I have only little tubes of color. And only three color. I feel too lazy to learn more about mixing colors. And I run out of colors and – a shame – I feel suddenly miserly to buy more or big tubes of color.
Now I’m waiting for the refreshing of my motivation….
One thing at the end: I scribbled creatures and giraffes instead of dogs – inspired by #1 June: Blue Dog Go with Carla Sonheim. I like very much drawing in old telefon books; this were some pages with maps. And I really like this cute giraffe
