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!
