Another assemblage painting for Day 3.

I struggled with this one. I had an idea about a teal and green colour scheme so once again I started out with an acrylic skin (do you get the feeling I like making these?) and a blue and green paper sandwich. Unfortunately the colour on the paper seemed to dull after I stuck it onto the surface. The rest is pure improvisation with some thin cotton twine intertwining (pun intended) aaaaround the different elements. I found it difficult to bring all this together into a more coherent art piece and kept adding more elements probably overdoing it.

Lesson learnt: start intuitively and stop and plan some before continuing.
