Last week, I watched Flora Bowley demonstrate her techniques on large canvases.
I began to build up layers on my 20"x20" canvas, starting with warm colours.
When it was dry, I painted my cold colours!
Next, white acrylic and then black!
Finally, I added some colours that I felt would complete my creation...and here it is!
For my second canvas, a little larger, I was more careful about colour choice, because I wanted to hang it in my hall.
I started with blues and silver.
Added some green
a little bronze, white and brown.
It felt unfinished, so I went bold and overpainted some shapes in purple and framed it with purples. So, here is my second ever large painted canvas.
I forgot to mention that I used a variety of makes of acrylic paint and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience!
