Painting In Progress...


T'other day I had to paint.
I had a serious case of painter's itch.
So I grabbed the very large canvas that I had used on the 'Introduction To Abstraction' workshop at The Steel Rooms.
I love working on previously painted canvases as you find unexpected layers underneath and the surface texture has already been built up.
 
There's still a long way to go, I haven't touched on the top right hand corner section yet, and there's more work to do on the abstract background.
This is the stage where I have to keep popping in, adding a bit there, taking a bit away here.
It's a bit like playing chess against yourself but with paint!
Off for a lie down now...!

  1. I am also having painter's itch from last few days and started painting over, just like you, on a old canvas yesterday. But is no where near finished yet. You are so productive Mrs B. X

  4. I love your hares (which sounds a bit weird when you say it out loud). Why is he looking so anxious? Has he seen something nasty in the woodshed??

    1. Ha! That sounds like that fab song by The Divine Comedy. He does look a bit startled doesn't he! X

  5. Beautiful Mrs. B! I love the softness of the hare against the sharp angles of the background! And the colors are awesome!

Would you like to make a comment chuck?
I'd love to hear your thoughts, just a minute and I'll put the kettle on.
Custard cream or bourbon?
