Masking off

This week, Lucy D and I painted a 'Wellbeing Wall' in Bristol Mind's reception. We created a painted mosaic effect by drawing a 3x3 inch grid all over a wall, using 4 different colors to paint the squares. It took an awfully long time, but nicely absorbing and almost meditative. Towards the end we found we were getting quite sloppy, so masked off some squares to make the much neater. I like the bleeding effect you get when using masking tape with drawing inks. It works but it doesn't work. A happy accident.
