Stomping in Puddles along the Road - AEDM 19

So I DID have a little time to throw some paint around before bed. AEDM 19 after all. Here are several photos of the lined square I posted yesterday - I decided to get the color in and THEN figure out what this is going to be (if). The first is just watercolor, but some is applied using an old toothbrush. Then I got our the acrylic bottles - I love these Lukas colors in the squeeze bottles. Then the image with white, blue, and finally with some green and a neon red Prismacolor pencil. Out of time - will play and ramble over this more tomorrow.

hi steve, I feel like aem is really keeping me on my toes and am starting to feel a bit of stress, how about you? sigh...

anyway, this is neat to see your beginning beginning and I can see the edge of your stretcher and the paper stapled down, exactly as I thought you did it...what I first saw in the top photo was a big giant flying pig! (don't hate me, it wasn't a sheep anyway and I looked for one :) then 100's of other things so it really has possibilities and I can't wait to see how your bring them out. (if you do~~) sometimes, life gets in the way and then there's CRAYONS to keep me up on this challenge!

have a peace-full day!

I definitely need to try some of this "play as you go" art process. Letting the image emerge on its own terms. Perhaps I'll give it a try soon.

Linda - Yes, it does push me along, but it's not TOO stressful yet. I've worked three evenings, though, when I might have slacked off, thanks to AEDM... I laughed when you said you'd been looking for sheep - I did too, but was happy not to find any. And a flying pig? I have to look for it.

Kelly - Welcome, and thanks!

Anonymous - Now do you see what I meant about those Fohvies? How 'bout them colors?! And as for mister Moldy - well hardly anyone can compare.

Carin C. - I hope you discover something cool if you try it. It's about a 50 50 proposition with me (About half the time I just lose a sheet of paper - but I always learn something).

Leah - Thanks! I'd love to see more of your process, too - though it might interrupt your flow to stop and take pictures... We got a bit of a glimpse with your stormy painting, because you stopped for the day between under painting and final piece. That was instructive for me, about acrylics AND about grays (which I don't use a lot...)
