I’ve been watching #faye_bridgwater and #coraharringtonartist unveil the journey of their art work. Their 7 day paintings have inspired me to do my own. Go onto their instagrams to see their results. So mine is in the vegetable garden on a sheet on tin on the ground I have added all the rocks I’ve been collecting and some wood that has been cut down in our garden. Socked paper with rain water and added what I had left of my ink. The aim is to leave the painting outside for 7 days and nights in the elements and to add layers of colours to it each day. I’m excited to see what happens not sure my paper is heavy enough to survive but we shall see.Its raining on it at the moment wonder what effects it will bring. #makingartwithnature#expermentalart#7days
The black got washed away a bit so I added some blue ink. Already seeing some lovely texture and patterns. Resisting the temptation to look under things. The wood is sucking up some colour aswell #rainpainting #7daypainting @coraharringtonartist @faye_bridgwater @creatinghealing #expermentalart
The layers from today. I love the layer of colour that is being produced. I have decided on a bluey purple colour scheme. Can’t wait to check it in the morning #experimentalart #experiment #7days #naturepainting #rainpainting #havingfun @faye_bridgwater @coraharringtonartist @creatinghealing
The colours from yesterday got washed away in the rain. Decided to be a bit braver today and add alot of blue in the hope it stays on and so can add lots of purple tomorrow. I like that the autumn leaves are falling on the painting I haven’t been taking them off leaving them to see if they will doing anything. Lots of lovely little things happening on different parts . @faye_bridgwater @coraharringtonartist #rainpainting #7daypainting #rain #experimentalart #freedom #gowiththeflow
Alot of the blue stayed from yesterday. Today I added brusho crystal colour purple and a little black as it had mostly washed away. I can’t wait until Sunday to see the final result. @faye_bridgwater @coraharringtonartist @creatinghealing #7daypainting #rainpainting #experiment #experimentalart #colourful #layers #leaves #rocks
Added a tiny bit of metallic black today. Its outside for its last night and gives a dry day tomorrow cant wait to see what has happened under everything hoping it will dry quickly in the sun @faye_bridgwater @coraharringtonartist @creatinghealing #itsthefinalcountdown#rainpainting#7daypainting#exciting#lotsoflayers#artist#colourful#hurryupanddry
Its drying. I wanted to take it in to dry as looks like its going to rain here. Needed to lift the wood off to be able to carry it. I’m suprised at how much of a resist the wood has created the wood sucked up all the ink. Some lovely textures. Leaving the rest to dry as still a few pools of color to dry. #itsfinished #rainpainting #7daypainting #drying #watchingpaintdry #exciting @coraharringtonartist @faye_bridgwater @creatinghealing
My 7 day rain painting dried enough that I could take the rocks and leaves of. I love the patterns and depth of colour. I enjoyed this process and the freedom that comes with it. #rainpainting #colourful #ocean #rockpools #freeing #makingartwithnature @creatinghealing @faye_bridgwater @coraharringtonartist thank you for the inspiration this was very enjoyable to do and I will be doing it again.
