OctPoWriMo Day 3


Today’s prompt is Beauty in Chaos. I opted to do the creative exercise.

brand new paint set
no expectations
just exploration
42 colors
some vibrant
some muddy
no plan
just joy and delight
comparing the matte color on the tray
with what it looks like on the paper
blended with water
different kinds of strokes
green leaves
swirls and dots
a crescent of red
tendrils of blue and green
orange made pastel with white
squiggles and lines
nothing thought out
just the pleasure of getting to know the paints
