Went out for open air painting with my friend and when we were almost at our destination I realized I forgot my brushes! My friend works with water media and doesn't carry oil brushes... so I borrowed a pencil, a piece of conte and a water brush:
Alberta landscape #28
graphite and conte on canvas
10 x 10"
Thinking this next one is finished. It has been hanging around my peripheral vision in the studio and doesn't seem to want any more work:
acrylic on stitched canvas
62w x 32h
A new triptych stitched and stretched. I really like the texture made with bits of burlap. They measure 31 x 32" each:
And here, gesso'd. The plan is to paint them in a similar style as the Drift And Settle:
I used a piece of canvas that had been stapled onto my work table. While it was on my table I painted on it, gesso'd other canvases on it, drew lines on it to mark sizes for canvases I was stitching, et cetera. I really like the spattered and random look of this.
Now there is another piece of canvas stapled to my work table, destined for the same use sometime in the future.
