Sometimes I wish I had never started painting ๐Ÿ˜”


Part two ……

After spending eight hours painting yesterday I ended up with this.

Which I tried looking at from all directions

Nope ๐Ÿ‘Ž John said it looked like a dice ๐ŸŽฒ so I decided that surgery would have to be performed to remove one of the planets. ย I scrubbed up and put on my gloves

I always wear gloves now because I’m a messy painter ๐Ÿ˜” I get paint all over me and my surrounding area, I put it down to my artistic flair, John puts it down to my clumsiness. ๐Ÿ˜ณ

I decided rather than cut the planet out I would cover it so I painted around a plastic plate ๐Ÿ˜‰

Erm! Why is my plate not round??? ๐Ÿค” Anyway I began painting over the planet with white heavy duty paint.

I couldn’t understand why the previous planet was still showing through ๐Ÿ˜ค I then had the idea ๐Ÿ’ก of painting it yellow. I also painted out the blue planet above as it was very close.

OMG ๐Ÿ˜ฎ now it looked like a cross between a pizza and a fried egg. ๐Ÿณ I decided to paint it darker, throwing paint on to it some of which missed the canvas ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Great ๐Ÿ˜ณ Now it’s an omelette! and the planet I painted out above it previously looks like a tennis ball. ๐ŸŽพ Now my adrenaline was really starting to ย kick in, is it any wonder I’m on BP medication ๐Ÿคญ I applied water to the omelette and scrubbed it off the canvas! The previous planet underneath was still intact . ๐Ÿ˜ค

I was running around the room like a headless chicken ๐Ÿ“ why on earth do I put myself through this. ๐Ÿ˜ซย ๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ˜ซ

Once sanity had resumed I painted my new planet blue and the one above it dirty white ( I had some black paint on my brush) I decided the planet on the top left needed brightening up so I chose a lovely orange shade.

It really was not my day today, ย the damn planet turned into a Jaffa orange ๐ŸŠ Not to be phased I decided some champagne glitter might make it darker ๐Ÿ˜Š

Then decided to add gold to my blue planet!

I twirled my brush round and round in the blue planet. ย This would not beat me!

I added the gold to my Jaffa orange, sorry other planet and got this result ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

๐Ÿ˜Ž Bright eh! I also added some colours to the last planet.

Then came all the straightening up. I added gold, champagne and white stars, then painted some out again! Then I defined the planets again and showed John who looked baffled ๐Ÿ˜ฎ. I got ๐Ÿคฌ he got ๐Ÿ˜ฌ and we agreed to disagree! John is very factual where as I’m very much fantasy! I don’t even know what planets look like never mind their formations ๐Ÿ˜ณ

Anyway this is it, I doubt very much that it will go onto myย Etsyย site. ย Hey, Iโ€™ve just had a thought! It still looks like a dice ๐ŸŽฒย ๐Ÿ˜‰ย Today has definitely been a day of compromise!



  1. I like the depth created by the added colors on the planets. Such a dilemma, it’s supposed to be enjoyable! But I can imagine, and I’d definitely add it to the site. Everyone likes different things, I bet you’ve found through your art. Go for it! ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿผ

  2. Well, maybe you did struggle with getting this one to behave itself….but, it made for a VERY entertaining blog post, anyway, Elaine! Sometimes we all need to slosh the paint about and never mind about the results, just show up and paint and see what happens! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Yes it was a win win situation. I think itโ€™s a great learning curve too. I have no fear! I know I can rectify my mistakes ๐Ÿ˜‰ I also want other blogger to see what we go through when we step that little bit higher. Anyone can paint if they practice, practice, practice!
