My tears of frustration, that is.
It's been a week or two since I last painted anything, so I decided to get my act together and try to use acrylics again on canvas.
I quickly discovered one minor issue though... the canvas I want to use is a weird, extremely narrow, rectangular shape and all my ideas for paintings were for big, wide, rectangles or squares. Still, that was not going to deter me(!), so I decided to look through a couple of old photo albums. It didn't take long to come up with this little beauty:
|Aw - isn't it pretty?!|
I thought this picture, taken a couple of years ago in the Lakes District, England, may just work on my narrow, Aussie size 6 canvas. (Size 6, is because if this canvas was a dress size, that's what it'd be!)
Whilst I was still feeling inspired, I quickly started my latest artistic project.
Righto! First step: Paint the background.
|Yes - that IS a tub of margarine in the corner of the picture!|
Stay tuned for the next installment in a couple of days, where you'll discover whether I ended up tightly curled in a little ball in the corner, or running around my house with glee and jubilation.
Who knows? Only time will tell!
