Today I wanted to try painting without using outlines. So I painted “Happy Cat” . It surprised me how challenging it was to not rely on a line to communicate for me. I had to really think about shapes, colors and brush strokes in a way that pushed me outside my comfort zone. I’m going to try a few more paintings this way, and see how it goes. I really haven’t decided if I like it this way, or if I’m going to go back to outlining 🙂 What do you think?
By the way, if you like “Happy Cat” you can buy a print, a mug, shirt and more at my store.
