Timeless is the largest picture on canvas that I have done. It seemed like it has taken timeless hours to complete but I think it is finally done except for the sides. That however isn't the inspiration for the title. Always when I am at the beach I am struck by the waves that come in with such consistency and rhythm, they go on 24/7 so I thought it would be an appropriate title. Many thanks to Margaret Battye at PMP for the use of this gorgeous shot.
I have been working on this for a couple of weeks now and always at the end it is hard not to get impatient. Firsts for this picture was: 1) working on canvas, might I say a BIG canvas (initially all that white was intimidating), 2) used the new interactive acrylics (they are different and I need more practice with them and need to try the mediums that make them special) and 3) painting lots of water. I love the sense of power that this piece has, and, of course, the colors. Never thought I could be partial to pthalo green. But the most fun was trying to get the foam and spray and I worked a lot of this picture upside down so it was easier to get the brush strokes I wanted.
I had the canvas for quite a while, at least 2+ years now, after I read that only amateurs work small, (yes, it tells you where I am in the scheme of things, D:)) but could never figure out what I wanted to put on it until I start working with painting water. Thought this size would look good over my fireplace, a sneak peek below of what it might look like hanging. Jane, sorry, but just not up to your level - have to work on it as I always love how you display!!
I have decided I have to do it again, work large and might even try to go bigger, after all I have to fill up the walls now. Wonder how big I can get into my Honda or well my neighbor has a big SUV!!?
Thanks much for taking a look and have a super weekend.
