Colorful Houses Painting w/Notes

I’ve been painting a lot lately and enjoying it.  It’s helping me get through some difficult times.  When I paint, all I think about is painting.  Is there anything you do that gets you through difficult times?

Here is today’s painting.  I’ve been admiring the work of Georges Rouault so I imitated his style.

Sometimes I have a hard time thinking of a subject to paint – it’s like writer’s block, but artist’s block.  Last night I saw a lady on Youtube that wrote subjects on small strips of paper and put them into a cup then drew one and that would be her subject to paint.  She also did it with colors.  So I did that and this morning I drew the subject cityscape and the colors yellow, blue and teal.  You will see other colors in this painting but I allowed myself to mix colors with those colors.  Anyway, I love this process because the result is something I never would have thought of on my own.

This is painted with acrylics on a 5″ x 7″ canvas board.  I have listed in on eBay here

      1. I have been working on a landscape today, several different colours and a couple more to add. I have been experiencing with a variety of brushes as well. I posted an update of it on my blog My Latest Challenge.
