Untitled 18 x 24 Acrylic deep, gallery wrapped canvas
Today I thought I would share with you a painting from my past. There is a bit of a glare, but with the recent weather, it is the best image I could grab. My apologies, please. At any rate, this painting has two siblings. True, one is in England, and the other one is in New Zealand. This one is at my house. I don't know why I have not done any other paintings like this, because the other two siblings quickly found homes.
I did this like a monoprint, but with two...would that be a polyprint? First I painted the backgroun of three canvases of the same size. Then from the paint tube, I "drew" a design on one canvas, and after that I pressed in turn the other two canvases to the first one. As you can imagine the second and third canvases did not have the same quantity of paint as did the first one. I also pulled the canvases apart differently, so the texture was different. [I wish I had pictures to show you of the other two, however I lost some photographs when we moved from England back to the US.] Once this was done, I then took a brush and worked each of these in a slightly different way. After they were dry, I did a bit more working of each painting.
To me, this one looks like a dancer in flowing skirts. The best news, these were great fun to do, because dealing with the color was the only thing I had control over in the beginning. There is a lot to be said for doing that from time to time.
Have a Very Lovely Day!
