So anyone following along will realise I’ve finished painting four “Demulcent” before painting 3 (Catharsis). That’s because I don’t normally plan my paintings thoroughly; I get a general idea or colour palette and then paint away!
Catharsis is a little bit of a train wreck because it didn’t look ‘right’ so I added more elements and more and then I had to stop. I moved onto Demulcent because I had no idea how to fix it.
I had fun painting Demulcent and layering the newspaper for texture underneath. I tried to take into account the meaning and let the painting process soothe me.
