Recycling Canvas

Another painting finished. This one has had several incarnations before this. It had a finished painting on it and then I wanted to paint over it because it had been around for a while. It got painted over more than once in the process of producing this final piece.

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 🙂

Playing With Time

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 🙂 

‘Harp’ – Acrylic and collage on board

I know I keep saying it, but this is one of my favourites!

‘Harp’ – Acrylic and collage on board, was painted specifically for this vintage frame. I like to give myself a challenge! 🙂
