Grey blanket



Acrylic on linen panel 8" x 8" £65 plus postage & packing (£3.50 to UK; £7 to rest of world)

This is the second painting on linen. I'm beginning to doubt now if it really is for me. Seem to lose a bit of the drawing line emphasis.

I like it, the texture from the linen works just fine, it holds you on a distance so to speak. And I guess it does the same with you as a artist, not a bad thing!!

What's possible is to experiment some with an own made panel/board/ Masonite With gesso and some texture paste or mosquito mash or only a random brushstroke, ....

all in one try to keep the loose touch that this texture gives you.

Good to get your feedback Rene. Yes, I think I'll go back to my masonite panels for the time being. Good idea about the texture paste but even without, it's the random brushstrokes which provide interest, I agree. (Although who knows how I'll feel tomorrow, hehehe!). Thanks for the encouragement!

Hi Sheila,

This is such a perfect depiction of the mood created by the fog in the country here this week. I've been so
drawn to it, but wouldn't know where to begin, so I'm in awe of you.

Take care,

Barbara

Thank you Barbara, the linen surface probably helped the fog along in this case but I think I prefer working on a smooth surface. But you don't know till you try it.
