April Showers



The prompt at The Artist’s Playroom this week is "APRIL SHOWERS BRING MAY FLOWERS".  While that may not be true in my part of the world, we certainly have the rain!



Today I used a small canvas panel and acrylics to create this semi abstract painting.  I tore out the figure from paper and laid it over the canvas then painted with fingers palette knife and splattered to my heart’s content.  Then I lifted the figure off, some of the paint has seeped through but I think it created an interesting edge.

  2. This is a beautiful melding of colours and of floers rain and figurevall hinted at. A lovely semi-abstract image. I feel the figure is sheltering from the shower under a weeping willow.

  8. I love the impressionistic rose shapes in contrast with your abstract human figure, as well as the interesting background. Blessings!
