Abstract on canvas – large



47″ x 39″ x 1 ½”

Acrylics, metallic paints and inks, on stretched deep wrap canvas.

Ground has been highly textured over a period of months, resulting in a very robust, cured surface that is quite hard.  I used caulk, modelling paste and other gels to get the texture.    It’s currently hanging in my bedroom (swamping my room as well because it’s quite a large painting), ‘cos I don’t have anywhere else to put it!

  1. Wow, what a gorgeous piece! Your room has lucky walls, indeed! 😀 Have you always worked large? I really admire bold and fearless artists who can do this! I am trying to work up the courage to go larger than 6×6″ lol.

  2. Hi Laura,
    Thanks very much for your kind comments, they are always welcome! I actually prefer to work on large canvasses but I just don’t have the space or luxury of being able to afford really big canvasses anymore. I am working on small things now and I just had to bust out this morning and finish this seascape, cos the canvas just kept on nagging me! I’m pleased I worked on it and it looks much better on the wall than in photos. Have a lovely day further xxx

  3. Thanks Deb! …and I’ll respond to your other message in the morning. Also congrats on your recent sale 🙂
