Playing with paint

Very hot and sticky today. This morning I pulled a heap of forget me nots and other weeds. I love the forget me nots when they are fresh but once they die off they get pulled, managing to usually get seeds all over me as well, so a new lot will start.
I also got out the outdoor furniture and washed it and set it up.
By then I needed a rest so I collected the watercolours and went to work, slowly, one layer at a time. It is so long since I did something like this I had almost forgotten how.
I only play paint so I dont pull my paintings apart and think what and where I could do better. to me that takes all the enjoyment I get out of painting away.
mMy hands shake when I am trying to do detail hence a few splodges.
Its not Julia.

But it's great - and I wish I could be so relaxed with watercolours. But I go all 'tight' and try to put too much in them.

Be proud of this painting.

Looks like Julia with a crush on the US President. Okay, red hair is fine for all kinds of people.
