Gesso Love Part 2...

what a rainy day it's been...
which is perfect really because it means I can get on and make some more art.

If you caught yesterdays post 'Love Gesso', you'll have seen the first stages of this 20"x20" canvas that I've been working on.
Well today, with all the rain, I took the chance to finish it off.


adding the paint (with my fingers)
this is a good picture to show you the size too.

painty close up.
I really like the smeared effect that comes with using my fingers, you can see some of my pencil crayon too if you look closely.

face close up - its still in progress here.
sometimes when you get a bit stuck or unsure if you have finished, it's really good to take photo's. The pictures often show up where still needs a few finishing touches.

Ta Da.

all finished
(apart from a little gloss and painted edges)

Hi Ophelia,
oh thank you so much for such a lovely comment. I'm really pleased that you find my art inspiring to you. I try to make things that I love, in ways that I enjoy and it's always really nice to hear that it reaches out to someone else too.
Thank you for stopping by.

Hi LynI
yes, I didn't hang around. I get a bit twitchy if things aren't finished so i usually keep going until they are done. I'm really pleased that you like her too.
