I’m so enjoying the page a day project, and the 12 in 12 (updates on that one soon) but it has meant that not so much art has been going on outside of the sketchbooks.
So I decided to venture out of my papery comfort zone and onto canvas. This is a first for me! It’s still a work in progress, but here’s how it’s starting out…
Being a deep canvas I want to incorporate the edges. With no particular plan I started out with acrylic glazes….
Starting out with collage bits the trial layouts begin then gluing commences!
Bit by bit…
More glaze to bring the bits together,
And some dyed scrim for a bit of texture
More paint, blending some of the raw edges together
More dyed scrim
And doodles in thread
I’ll post more as it develops, but so far I’m pleased with the way it’s coming together.
