I have been very busy today! After my long stretch of creative block I finally think I am getting out of it. I have painted a 16×16 inch canvas board that I textured a long, long time ago, and 2 9×11 inch thin canvases.

These two are textured with modelling paste and painted in acrylic and emulsion paints. All they need is a varnish and they’re finished! I have called them Twilight Blooms.

This is the painting I did on the canvas board (well, most of it!) I have painted two fairies in a flower garden. I am not yet sure what to call this piece.

They will be available to buy within the next couple of days! Now my mind has had a rest I hope to create a lot more pieces in the near future!

Textured Canvas Boards

When I am using canvas board, I start off by texturing it with all sorts of ripped card, paper and stencil, sticking them down with PVA glue and water. Usually I use musical note paper, and pages out of old Shakespearean texts such as Romeo and Juliet, and Macbeth. Another texturing effect that works brilliantly is tissue paper. The reason I use different types of paper and card is to enhance the board, so not only are two boards the same but it gives my paintings a great ‘rough’ look.

I have not yet decided what to paint on this 16×16 inch textured board…. but will definitely be posting the results when I do!
