 :eek: Gobsmacked! That's me! I really wasn't up to any 'serious' painting of late, so I decided to use up what was smeared all over the palette. Used much too much water and just kept slapping on layers of paint (even when it was too wet  :whistle: ) and there you have it. One massive happy accident!  ;D Who knew?

I thank you one and all for your lovely comments and encouragements.

Semi abstract you say Dennis...... well, this is another first for me!  :yippee:

If that's what you can knock out when you are 'slappy happy', I'd hate to see what you'd do when 'slappy Angry'!
Keep on with the happy Bird Val and grow some more beautifully painted flowers ;) :clap: :clap: :flowers:

Thank you all kindly. Much appreciated.

I highly recommend trying it. Just take what's on your palette, the back of an old not so great painting will do...and just have at it. Very therapeutic!  :yippee:

Great idea, Val!!!   :twothumbs:   You can get some nice greys that way, maybe a tonal painting???  :)
