Hello...I hadn't intended to stay away so long. I won't apologize though...
Life has been busy...and it is going to stay that way for awhile. I do hope I can spend a bit more time here now. I do miss blogging and visiting.
We are enjoying some spring-like weather after what has seemed like a FOREVER winter!! I'll take what I can get!
I have been painting and painting these past couple of months...working on technique, different surfaces and totally immersed in the joy of playing with color. What fun!
I hope to have some good news in planning for 2015...already, you ask?? I know, but I have to keep my priorities and goals in mind these days or I could go a little crazy!
I thought I would share what happens to a Canvas when you decide you don't like the Watercolor you have painted. This is probably not what a lot of artists would do, but it works for me.
The first pic is the canvas after I have removed the original painting and then deciding how and what to paint over it...(the original paint was a staining watercolor)...hence not all was completely removed. I am sure there is a product out there, but I decided to see if I could use what was left to my advantage...
|NEW PAINTING ON PAPER|
The second picture (right) is the new painting on watercolor paper. It looks much better on the paper, but I can't share the whole picture yet...it still needs a bit of work.
|ORIGINAL CANVAS WITH A NEW LOOK|
The painting above is the original canvas...you can still see the heart shape, and I have turned the canvas to a horizontal position.
|THE CANVAS NOW...A NEW WATERCOLOR!|
This is what the canvas looks like now. It is coming along. I still have a few more elements to add
to it. It has been a fun exercise in rescuing this canvas. I'll share the final painting in a few days.
Wishing you all a happy weekend!
Thank-you for visiting...
