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 🙂
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
The next painting I would like to show you is ‘Playing with time’ – acrylic and collage on board. This one took quite a while. Some times as an artist you can get to a point where a piece of art looks finished but you know it’s not complete. It was some time before I was able to put the final touches to this but I am pleased with the result of my patience 🙂
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.
It was my first workshop today and it went very well. The purpose purely to switch off from our every day responsibilities and enjoy a time to paint! I’m looking forward to the next one which is on 7th October. 🙂
