Paintbook Twoo/7

…and then I wondered what it it would look like if I painted circles within circles over a circled background….

…oh…

…it looks like that….

Paintbook Twoo/6

…instead of doing a page for each colour grouping…

…as per the previous post….

…I did this….

…maybe I’m destined to paint circles….

….lots and lots of colourful circles….

Paintbook Twoo/5

…”maybe I’ll try that circle thing in monotone”…

….that was the premise….

…here’s the result….

…the queue for the “50 shades” quips starts here…..

Paintbook Twoo/3

…holy crap…

…I haven’t posted a paintbook page since before I had covid….

…that’s like September last year!….

….and this is what covid did to my painter brain….

…was going to try and emulate the background-circle effect as seen in the last post….

…with something in the fore ground…

…covid brain neglected to process that in sketchbook I was doing the foreground first and the circles were generating from points on said foreground, not appearing as a fixed/regimented background….

…like the one I’d just finished producing….

…over two pages…

…mmm… thank you covid brain….

…(at least I know I can paint circles, right?)…

Paintbook 63-64

….the packaging said “64 sheets”…

…bastards were counting the end pages!…

…completely screwed my numbering system…

…couldn’t bring myself to use the covers…

…so smacked them with a collage of all the post it notes to self that go with the finished pieces I’ve worked on….

…there…

…will count the pages in Paintbook II before I start the numbering….

…oh….

…and here is a video run thru of the whole thing….

Paintbook 61

…and associates….

…you gotta have a plan…

…you gotta expand on the plan…

…then you gotta execute the plan…

…(that could take a while)…

…(it involves flies)…

…(lots of them)…

…(was trying to post this yesterday but my internet connection decided otherwise)…

…(probably should have a plan involving internet connections as well)….

Paintbook 59/60

…kinda in that uneasy space between finishing something large and trying to start the next one…

…have a screed of notes and colour guides developing around my drawing table in preparation…

…was going to post some more sketchbook only to discover that I’d re-scanned the last page posted thinking it was the one I wanted to put up now…

…had to finish the above (abandoned since January) to get back into paintbook without guilt….

…now I want to do a “good” version to hang!….

…(ah…there’s that next rabbit hole…)….
