Indian Fabrics

There's a charity shop I wanted to visit but every time I go past they're closed. Today, yippee, they were open and it's choc-a-bloc with beautiful Indian sari fabrics - I got the most beautiful pieces with lots of glitter and beads for £1 each. Of course, I have to just look at them until I get some painting done but they're lighting up my room with gorgeous bright colours.

Now then, I was suffering with the bare canvas/paper syndrome and feeling very uninspired. But I read somewhere to get a piece of paper and make random marks on it with paint, wax, pencils, not really thinking about what's going on - letting the paint run together and I had a whale of a time!! The colours are bold (reminding me of those Indian fabrics) and it has definitely freed me up and ready to paint for real. So, after dinner, I'm getting started....
