I told you before of how I have the most particular thoughts while I'm painting. Perhaps it is the fumes, or just the way my mind wanders when I am being artistic. Doug came home and asked me how I got the lines so straight at the top of the room- where the green meets the white. I said "I'm going to blog about it, so you can learn all about it, then."
I like to use the chiseled wedge foam brush- the smallest size. First, I load it with just enough paint, not so much that it drips, and then I push one color up to the edge of the next. You just want to introduce the two colors together enough that they kiss just a little. Then you hope that the two take to one another and embrace each other.
Now, where would someone get such a "special" way of describing how they bring two different colors of paint one to the other? I remembered all of the times I would watch the painting guy- Bob Ross. He was always so soothing- painting happy trees and fluffy little clouds. So calming. He passed away in '95, but his show is still on re-runs sometimes. Bob Ross painting fluffy clouds.
Do any of you remember him? He was a very gentle, calming man. I would just lay on the sofa and watch him paint and relax. Not so relaxing when I am the one doing the painting- but I can still have peaceful thoughts in the meantime!
