My Work on Canvas

I had started painting on canvas quite sometime ago  and was not sure I should put it up.   It's certainly different painting  on canvas and it goes without saying that you do  have to use a lot more paint.  The bigger surface area and the larger than normal  designs  needs getting used to but on the bright side, its total freedom, freedom, freedom from the constriction of small surface and boards.

The time taken was also longer as I had to wait for the 'mood'  to strike me.  Between my housework, teaching and conducting classes, time was sometimes a premium.  Painting on canvas is certainly different and I would like to thank my good friend and ' art terrorist' , Ms Rashidah,  for her encouragement.

This was painted on canvas measuring 2ft x 3 ft.

Would the 'art terrorist ' like to comment ?

Happy reading and painting
