A couple of weeks ago my daughter drew a picture, and then firmly instructed me to paint a copy. She was very firm in the colour selection, and I was told not to stray from her composition or subject matter. I have been a bit slow getting the painting finished, but I hope to complete it soon.
If you are wondering what it is, it’s a three jet engine, three propeller, and six wing airplane. Apparently it lands on its side with wheels that extend from its right wingtips. There are also candy cane clouds, and lollypop bushes. Groovy.
There is a bit of everything in this one. The dots were set down with a rubber stamp on the reverse of this transparent painting. Then I added dots of gouache to the front. My working method is to glue and tape pieces together to make a larger sheet and then I cut the sheet into 12×12 inches. I take what I get from the resulting sheets warts and all, and that is why there is a piece of tape and other odd folds and creases in the paper. The tape is between three layers. I thought about painting over it but I decided to leave it, and I’m glad I left it.
