Painting on up-cycled packaging, all finished after lots of layers!
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 🙂
‘Suspension’ (acrylic on canvas) is another painting I did recently which I’ve sold and has just had picked up to go to it’s new home! So pleased that it’s going to be enjoyed by such a lovely person! 🙂
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.
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
As my regular followers know, I’ve been doing some intuitive panting workshops for relaxation and mindfulness. These are to give an opportunity to escape the rat race of life and focus on the pleasures of intuitive painting. Here are some photos of the latest workshop to show what’s been done. My next workshop is on Saturday 10th November 10 am – 12 noon.
