Accidental Beauty

So today I was working on a painting and accidentally made a tissue paper painting 😛

I sometimes lay toilet paper underneath my painting to prevent paint from pooling along the sides. The toilet paper was still wet in the pictures so it give it a rippling texture and I thought it looked so beautiful. The blue gradient really added to this as well, so beautiful!

This last one was from another painting but it was the toilet paper that made this yellow texture as well. I thought it was really neat!

I come across these accidental paint things sometimes but I really needed to share this since it looks so beautiful!

To me, because of the blue gradient, it looked like the beach at low tide. What do you think? If you paint do you get things like this happen?

Into The Dark

I wanted a painting that was told in two stories but was linked in some way.

The sun and moon always have their dance at dusk and you can see the two entangling their separate worlds together:

As the sun dies it’s light illuminates the sky with mystical shades of yellow, orange and pink with the blue sky showing some reminiscence as if saying goodbye. When the sun dies, it’s light is soft but dying too so there is darkness high above and this is when you can see the moon, illuminated by the dying sun, and surrounded by stars now visible by the lack of sunlight.

The two are connected in such a brief moment, but together they are entwined.

I think of this dance as a parent and their child  but to you, who is the moon and sun?

Maybe lovers?
