Acrylic on canvas – green stripe

‘Acrylic on canvas – green stripe’. I’m very pleased with this one 🙂 This is painted on top of one of my old paintings, therefore recycling the canvas and saving money!


Recycled Substrates

My husband recently ordered a white board and when it arrived I eagerly claimed the packaging. A large, reinforced piece of corrugated cardboard was going to be my next challenge! First lots of primer!

A layer of pale grey as well to get me started and then my automatic drawing! 

A good start but I know I knew a good few layers of paint would be needed to compensate for the texture of the cardboard.

I like it but yet more layers are needed 🙂

Christmas Family

As you can see, this particular painting is painted in a very different style to my other work. I had a specific idea in my head that I wanted to produce a Christmas icon. The image was in my head that I wanted so I just went with the flow!! I also painted it on unprimed canvas, which was lovely and I think added to the look of the finished piece. 

I will be selling Christmas cards portraying this image this coming Saturday 9th December (2017) at Fakenham Makers Market.

Open Studio and Art Preview Autumn 2017

As Many of you know I had an open studio at the weekend to preview the painting I did over the summer. He’s a sneaky peak, just in case you missed it.    A big thank you to everyone who came and to those who bought work, enjoy you paintings 🙂 I had a great time x
