Small canvas

Been busy lately with Life Book 2014. Great fun and highly recommended. I have noticed that I am initially reluctant to do some exercises; “It’s too easy/hard/complicated/simple…” but when I knuckle own and get on with it, I find myself challenged and engrossed. Some of my results have been a little… well rubbish. Others have turned out better than expected. For more see my blog, Art Journaling.

This week’s exercise was presented by Alena Hennessy, and I enjoyed it so much, I grabbed a small canvas this afternoon and produced another one.

Intuitive painted canvas

Materials: modelling paste, stencils, collage, acrylic paint, gesso, Neocolor 1s, charcoal.
