Canvas Painting – The Gili in the skies

When was the first time you did something for the first time? I guess if you can’t remember then it is time to try something new! Had an itch to learn how to paint recently, and thanks to some tips from a book I bought at the Big Bad Wolf sale, inspired by the lovely paintings of Emily Jeffords I decided to pick up the brush for the first time in like err… 20 years.

All I had was a small canvas bought from Spotlight, some brushes from Daiso and borrowed some of my eight year old poster colors. The challenge was to blend the basic poster colors to get the in-between turquoise hues that I had in mind. The results – a panoramic sky with blue ocean colors inspired by Gili Trawangan. Not bad for a first timer eh?
