After thinking about it this afternoon, I realised I shouldn't abandon using impasto just because of one lousy experience. With a braver hand than heart, I cracked open the jar (literally - the impasto had sealed the lid shut onto the bottle) and fervently went about creating the following minature painting (shown actual size):
|Pink enough for you?|
I decided to magnify it a zillion (well, a few) times and try an almost abstract style, plastering impasto petals all over the canvas.
Whilst the painting may not have completely worked, I think it shows some possibilities. In fact, I'm starting to imagine this concept could work on a much bigger scale. Can you see what I can see? Are you nodding your head in agreement? Oui? Non?
I think I'll take it to art class tomorrow night to see if my teacher, Ms Kathy can give me a little assistance to fine tune the details of this little artwork and to help me develop my future idea further. I wonder what will transpire in the next little while - oh how I love a mystery!
