4°C dropping to -4 or worse!
It’s taken until now finding time to get on with that painting. Domestic stuff has filled my day, painting, assembling white goods, assembling flat-packs from Ikea. I should get paid for this; it’s my holiday you know!
Now I’m off to do something useful….
Finished one! Twohats is done, below is a closeup but if you want an overall view, it’s in the Finished Paintings section. It’s the first one I have done on those canvas boards- you know the canvas stretched onto hard cardboard.
Seems like good stuff – especially after adding a layer of gesso – I judged the surface to be a bit coarse.
That leads me onto the next problem- when it comes to mounting the picture- erm… how? Presumably I have to get some routed wood and mitre it to fit. Sounds ok, but lacks control on exact framing, the mitre limits the edge overhang to the same amount on all sides.
Still- it looks ok though. Aaand… I returned to the folded arms picture. Maybe this can be used to the pink/green idea discussed recently.
