Two Black Pansies
The last two days have been such great painting days, always so grateful for those. I have approached everything more experimentally and it is liberating! The flops don't count for anything, no attachment. I bought a pack of 8x6 canvas sheets and there are two examples of four sorts of canvas in the pack. There is big difference in how the paint goes down on them. I had never painted on linen before and it is quite amazing. The texture of the linen does not encourage an edge - it is really easy for the edge to get lost. Just. Like. Velasquez! It is freezing here now, but when it warms up I will shoot the try out and post it.
