It’s been a while, I know. I generally blog about things that are on my mind, and the last few months have been somewhat turbulent with things I don’t really want to share online for various reasons.
But new year, new thoughts! (Happy new year, everyone!)
I put a paint by numbers kit on my Amazon wish list, and my Mother delivered for Christmas. I’ve wanted to try my hand at painting for a while (I’ve already tried my hand at drawing – here’s my deviant art page, for the curious), but the cost of the materials was somewhat off-putting. Painting by numbers strikes me as the perfect way to see if I can do it in a cheaper way before really diving in.
As you can see, I have opted to paint a giant fairy cat sitting on a moon. Because – why not? When it’s complete, it will have pride of place somewhere in my house, where guests will be forced to politely mention how unique it is. Here’s a close up of what we’re aiming for:
I’ve opted to do one number a session in order to share my progress
as this disaster unfolds.
So, today was brought to you by the number 1. Which is a pale egg shell blue,
so may not show up that amazingly.
Lessons learnt from Number 1 paint:
- I do not have a steady hand (though I already knew this).
- This took about an hour. This is going to take a while – there are 21 colours in total.
- I should work on my photography skills.
